Sandia Mountain Wilderness
The Sandia Mountain Wilderness area is one of my favorite places to go for a quick run or hike. Facing one direction, you can see the city of Albuquerque, but turn around and you can see the Sandias towering over you. They are particularly beautiful in winter and early spring when covered in snow. The mountainside provides an excellent vantage point for seeing clouds and storms as they rush across the valley from Arizona.
