Our last stop before flying home from the airport was in Albuquerque. First we took the Sandia Peak Tramway up to over 10,370 feet elevation, a 30 degree temperature drop and pretty strong winds.
We “rocked” a little bit on the way up. Kinda spooky so I hung on tightly to the interior poles and my Sweetie as much as I could.
The terrain from one side of the mountain to the other was totally different.

Once we made it safely back down to the tram station, we set out to find the quilt shop located on Tramway Drive. It turned out to be to the opposite end of Tramway Drive, several miles from where we started but it headed us closer to our hotel.
This book was displayed in the window of Quilts From the Heart quilt shop in Albuquerque next to a quilt made from one of the patterns in the book.
That quilt simply took my breath away and I just had to buy the book. You can see more of the book and its contents here.
Reflection on the glass made a photo almost useless, but I tried.
Arriving back at Love Field the next day was a shock to our New Mexico acclimated bodies. The humidity and 90+ degree temperatures just slapped us in the face for a welcome home!
