We start the video at the intersection of Central Ave and Tramway Blvd on the eastern fringes of Albuquerque. Driving roughly parallel with Interstate 40, we make our way east out of Albuquerque over the Sandia mountains.
After crossing I-40 for the second time, we reach the “Musical Highway” where if you drive 25mph over a stretch of road, “America the Beautiful” can be heard. We didn’t include the ‘music’ because the microphone on the gopro really isn’t all that great to begin with and the quality was poor.
Entering Tijeras, we continue east through the intersection with NM-337 for about a half mile before reaching the entrance ramp to I-40 in Tijeras where we end the video merging onto I-40.
