Some places can give you a great view of a dawn, or a dusk, but nowhere other than Albuquerque can you get such perfect views of both any day you want to look.
One of these days the secret is going to get out, and there will be a massive — and I mean tidal-wave sized — influx of people moving into Albuquerque. The city is already the biggest in New Mexico, and a hub for commerce, entertainment, and even medical care. We don’t have a major league sports team, but I have to say that if the Albuquerque Isotopes ever entered the big leagues, we would probably come out on top there, too. Why? Because Albuquerque is the best city in the entire American southwest, and one of the nicest places to live in the entire world. I can go on and on with facts and figures for you, about how great the public transportation is in Albuquerque, and how it has the top rated medical centers for the entire state. Instead of all that, I want to tell you my personal favorite aspect of Albuquerque — I get to witness the most beautiful sunrises, and sunsets, on a regular basis. Because of how flat and wide open this stretch of New Mexico is, and because we have very little smog or light pollution, we get amazing views facing both east and west. Some places can give you a great view of a dawn, or a dusk, but nowhere other than Albuquerque can you get such perfect views of both any day you want to look. Although our city keeps growing, it never encroaches on the beauty of the surrounding landscapes. Albuquerque and it’s people want to be a part of it and not turn it into a giant metropolitan center. And with our many cannabis dispensaries it’s easy to enhance those sunsets, if you know what I mean.
