Okay, I couldn't help myself. I had to take a picture of this silly little sign. Using the universal language of imagery I think its pretty obvious what this sign is displaying.
"No dogs with diarrhea allowed."
While I was in New Mexico I stopped in Albuquerque where my friend there took me up to the Sandia Mountain. We went for a small hike up and around the ridge there overlooking Albuquerque.
Up on top of the peak there is a huge array of radio towers. I actually had a difficult time getting this picture. Every time I turned my camera to the towers to try to take a picture my camera would freak out. The display would start flashing and distorting and it would make all kinds of weird sounds. For a moment I thought my camera was about to go out on me until I realized what was happening.
From the top of the Sandia Crest, at just over 11,300 feet, you could see for hundreds of miles in just about every direction.
On one side of the mountain there's a restaurant where you can take a tram up to and back down the mountain and save from taking the long drive up to the top.
The weather there was beautiful but it was just a little bit cold up there and the wind was pretty gusty.
A small chipmunk was running around trying to get some handouts. I didn't have any food on me so I just gave him a tip, "Buy low, sell high." and went on my way.
Quite a surprising place it was there. With the desert below its always nice to have somewhere like this to escape and get a change of scenery and its obviously not too far from the city below.
