We’re visiting a friend who lives near Albuquerque, and as luck would have it, just in time for Balloon Fiesta.  Last night we set the alarm for 4:30 a.m. so we could be there for Morning Glow – wow!

Next came Mass Ascension of the 500+ balloons at Fiesta. For the next two hours, waves of beautiful and unique balloons launched into the New Mexico sky.

In addition to the traditional balloon shapes, there were lots of fun character balloons in the air.
