Sandia - the Spanish word for watermelon. The name given to the mountain range just North-East of Albuquerque to identify the red/pinkish color of the mountain at sun-set. This city is near and dear to my heart as I have lived here for 25+ years. The community is an integral part of the success of this small town. The locals are loud and proud to be from this area and it shows. The beautiful environment, clean/fresh air, custom homes are just a few things that make Sandia Park so special. It is a wonderful place to raise a family. A break-away from the city but close enough to Albuquerque to compete in a larger job market. Like living in a little slice of heaven!
