Beige object west of Sandia Crest, Albuquerque, NM

I am a 40 year old male, former biochemist and practicing securities lawyer.

I am submitting a photo that was taken by me at the end of Pino Trail near the top of Sandia Mountain at 1:58pm on May 26th. I did not witness the object at the time the photograph was taken.

Zoom in on the object that appears above the clouds. I was alone and at least 4 miles few miles away from "civilization." No other hikers were in the area - so rock throwing is unlikely.

A second photo taken within 10 seconds of the attached pic and shows nothing (although it doesn't show exactly the same portion of the sky, it does capture the area where this object is located). I can send photo nos. 6199 and 6201 and others taken at the spot within minutes of photo no. 6200 if you have any interest. In any case, these seem to discount the weather balloon theory.
