The longest aerial tram in North America takes tourism to new heights.

from Reader's Digest Magazine | May 2007

 The Sandia Peak Tramway takes tourism to new heights, literally. The longest aerial tram in North America totes visitors up 2.7 miles to an altitude of 10,378 feet in just 15 minutes. It offers breathtaking views of Albuquerque and Mount Taylor, the Rio Grande valley, and the Cabezon Peak volcanic formation below — plus a glimpse of the occasional golden eagle. Cost per ride: less than $20.
