Today started really early, not helped by losing an hour from PST to MST … but it was TOTALLY worth it!
Sandia MINI was the start point today and, like MINI of Peabody, they seem to totally “get it” – they have provided excellent support for MTTS both yesterday and today, including an amazing hot air balloon display! The dealership also provided coffee & donuts, and had a raffle which raised money for a local childrens hospital:
Then about 70 MINIs headed off for a drive to Sandia Crest, with even a police escort initially! The road to Sandia Crest is incredible – very twisty with regular hairpins and switchbacks, and so early in the morning the MINIs had no problem running up at quite exhilerating speeds! I love my GP 🙂
At the top the view is incredible – both MINIs, Alberquerque, and Hummingbirds!
After all that, a much less inspiring drive!
