I was bored every weekend before moving to Albuquerque.
My rural community in southern CO had a lot to offer in natural beauty from the wildlife to the whole plant ecosystem, even though I wanted a bigger neighborhood or a small town to live in.
It’s difficult to be triumphant in your 20s when you can’t go out plus spend time with other people your age. And since I lived in the tri-state area near the OK plus KS borders, I was surrounded with farmland plus prairie desolation in every conceivable direction. After moving to Albuquerque plus making current friends, I was constantly asked how I liked the mountains in CO before leaving. People are shocked when I tell them that my tiny hometown was so close to KS that I might as well have been in that state from the start. Sure there is plenty of flat land in the Albuquerque area that looks flat plus desolate, especially to the west, however there is the Sandia Mountain range to the east. One of my favorite pastimes in Albuquerque is getting high plus riding the Sandia Peak Tramway with my friends. Until a few years ago, the Sandia Peak Tramway was the longest cable car tram system in the world. Although it has had a number of critical failures over the years, the tramway has been improved many times. Nowadays it can handle any ice or snow from Albquerque’s freezing winters. It’s amazing looking out over the valley from atop Sandia Peak at over 10,000 feet above sea level. It’s a sight to behold, especially with cannabis in your system.
