Balloon Fiesta

Well it is nearing the end of the Balloon Fiesta and I made it out to see the balloons three times, twice on the grounds and once watching from a parking lot. Overall I had a fantastic time and could never really get sick of watching the balloons. It is one of those events that I like to go to so that I can see the reactions of people, especially children. The awe and wonder of an innocent face among a crowd is enough to bring joy to anyone. Here are some selected pictures from Balloon Fiesta, but you can always see more here. If you ever get a chance to come to ABQ, I highly suggest visiting during Balloon Fiesta, it is certainly one thing about ABQ that I will miss and will certainly be back for from time to time.





Dawn Patrol... 5:45 am and still very dark.



Me out on the field.



Trying to get the balloon up.



Special shapes lifting off.



A crisp fall morning, hundreds of balloons, a breakfast burrito... could life get any better?

That just looks so incredibly awesome! I am totally jealous, except for the whole up before dawn thing.

i took erin on a balloon ride for her birthday, not as many balloons here in hendersonville, so it's quite the event for just one balloon. peeps around here might fall dead seeing all those balloons you were around.

that's some crazy fun
