Places to Photograph both the Sandia Mountains and the Rio Grande Valley

Albuquerque is in a valley, and to capture that with the mountains in the background, you need an overlook from upon the west mesa. Here are four:

West Bluff Park, 2408 Alamogordo Dr., NW (east of the Walmart on Coors and I-40)
San Antonio Oxbow Overlook, at the east end of Namaste Drive that intersects Coors (cover photo from the same viewpoint)


Open Space Visitor Center, 6500 Coors Blvd., NW
Alameda Open Space, on the SE corner of Alameda and Rio Grande Blvd.
