This is an expanded
view, looking eastward from the northwest corner of
Cedar Crest, NM.
To the left (north),
nearby we see the forested slopes of the Cibola
National Forest boundary, and in the distance snow-capped Santa Fe
Baldy in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Homes in Sandia Park are in
the foreground to the north. Obsuring most of Baldy are the Ortiz
Mountains, first Ortiz Peak over Madrid and then, nearer in the
northeast, San Pedro Peak. Ridge Road cuts diagonally up Piñon
Ridge, which dominates the near horizon as we pan eastward. NM-14
emerges from behind the near ridge and courses cleanly southward. On
the near side of NM-14 directly east is the Ventana del Sol
Subdivision. To the southeast,
the low profile of the Manzanita Mountains emerges and is punctuated by
conical Cedro Peak. Far to the south are the snow covered twin
of the Manzano Mountains.
