As most of you know I can’t resist a good antenna tower.  These are the towers on Sandia Crest overlooking Albuquerque, NM.

Looking at the various antennas there are some nice new HDTV antennas in the mix as well as what looks like an fairly old original analog antennas well.  I like the number of ice breaker bars on the structures as well as the heaters around most of the FM antennas.  Looks like there is a bit of snow damage in places that hasn’t been fixed yet this summer.

Looking the other way there were a couple of paragliders enjoying the strong updrafts

And a silly picture of the sign in the general store.

And while we are showing pictures of signs, I liked this one as well—though I wished I had some test equipment to see just how high the noise floor is.
