This is a view of the Sandia mountains from my walk along Central Avenue. Here is a little clip from Wikipedia about the Sandia mountains.
The Sandia Mountains (Tiwa Pueblo) name posu gai hoo-oo, "where water slides down arroyo") are a mountain range located in Bernalillo and Sandoval counties, immediately to the east of the city of Albuquerque in New Mexico in the southwestern United States. The range is largely within the Cibola National Forest, and part of the range is protected as the Sandia Mountain Wilderness. It is home to the Sandia Peak Ski Area. Its highest point is Sandia Crest, 10,678 feet (3,255 m)
