Angel Fire Lift Ride



Beach lovers -- click on the picture to the left and tell us how pretty the water is.  This was amazing.  Even though we've ridden this lift up many times, it's the first time we've ridden it down -- that's not allowed in ski season.  It was also very different without snow on the ground.  If you're a non-skier, this is a marvelous chance to see a view you've never seen before.  This is a detachable quad, so getting on and off is easy.  Seeing me wobble with a cane, they called the other end -- both up and down -- and had them stop the lift so I could get off.  When I thanked the guy at the bottom (lower of two pictures above) and apologized for stopping the lift, he told me they were there to serve me, and it was absolutely no problem.  Wow, what a refreshing attitude.  Other ski resorts should listen.


Their website says it's a 2-mile ride to the top -- a peak at 10,560'.  You can also take a bicycle and bicycle down.  It's only open certain days -- usually weekends, so you might check their schedule.

No snow!


Puffy face.  Altitude?


Downloading!  You don't see that in ski season.





Can't beat the view


Partridge Family?

Can't beat this view, either

Mountain-top restaurant -- with table cloths!



Tony (above) is the manager of the restaurant at the top of the lift.  He greeted us when we came in!  And, when I went to the counter to get us two drinks, he saw I was walking with a cane and offered to take the drinks to the table for me.  What a guy!

Above is a couple who had seen us the night before at Zebediah's (many people notice me because of my cane and difficulty walking).  They're from Colorado, and are apparently very active in their senior years.
