Miss Albuquerque

Best Way to Unwind

Between making appearances as Miss Albuquerque, practicing walking and posing and being a full-time student at UNM, my favorite way to unwind is taking a scenic hike through the Foothills of the Sandia Mountains. As you venture deeper into the hills, you begin to feel as if you are entering another world. Whether you are an amateur hiker, a runner or you have many miles on your hiking boots, the Sandias offer a variety of trails and scenery. The transition from high heels to tennis shoes seems to be the best part, but once I set out on my adventure through the mountains, I look back to see the breathtakingly gorgeous sunset that always brings back my love and appreciation for the city I grew up in.
