When you get to the top of Sandia Peak there is the Sandia Crest House which houses a snack bar and a gift shop. It sits at an elevation of 10, 678 feet and it is 14 mile drive up to the top. When I was up there on SEPTEMBER 21, much to my surprise it was snowing!
Here is a map of the peak. The yellow building in the middle is the Crest House! To the left is Albuquerque and to the right is the photo I posted yesterday! On the map you can also see a heliport. There have been times when folks go up and get altitude sickness or they have a drink with dinner and the altitude intensifies the effect and they need to be flown down!
