"Sandia Crest is awesome!"
I remember it being surprisingly scenic and beautiful. With lush trees and the backdrop of the Sandia Mountains. Especially around sunset, the sky lit up in a beautiful gradient of pink and blue. I had thought New Mexico was just arid sand dunes and flat lands. We had brought our bikes and jumped on a trail, rode for about a couple miles of beautiful terrain. Apparently you can go during the winter to ski as well, definitely will have to have my buddy bring me back there!
