We like stopping at casinos if they are situated where we need them to be! Just so happens, Sandia Casino and Resort on the northern side of Albuquerque fit the bill. That is Sandia Crest in the background. We arrived around 2 PM, and the mountain top still had snow, but by evening it was gone.
One requirement is that the parking be relatively level and not made of dirt!
Despite the parking lot lights, sunsets can still be pretty. Tomorrow, Maxwell NWR.
