The alarm went off at 4:00am and I turned on the TV to see if the Farewell Mass Ascension was a go or cancelled due to the winds from last night...the news wasn't even on yet! So we figured that we didn't want to get all the way over there and pay another $10 for parking and $12 admission and find out that it was cancelled again! Yes, it costs $22 every time you go...$22 in the morning and $22 in the evening...and last night was a dud! We decided to reset the alarm clock to 7:00am and see if it was cancelled and if not, we'd watch it on TV! Well, sure enough our gut instinct was right...the activities were cancelled due to high winds.

So instead, we went to the 9:00 church service and then relaxed the rest of the day! Ed watched the Red Sox lose...YEAHHHHH! And the Yankees win...double YEAHHHHH! And I read a book for the first time in many months...John Grisham's 'The Broker'...I'm already about 1/3 of the way through...I miss reading books!

Tomorrow we're taking the longest tram in the world...the Sandia Peak Tram. It's only about 10 miles from the campground and it comes highly recommended. We plan on going up at 5:00pm in the daylight, have dinner at the top and then come back down after dark so we can see Albuquerque all lit up!

More tomorrow!
