ALBUQUERQUE BALLOON FESTIVAL

Saturday, October 4th



Up at 4 am, breakfast downstairs by 5:15 and we were on the road to the park & ride. Thousands of people had the same ideal but we finally arrived just before dawn about 6 am. What a marvelous experience we had for the next three hours. Rumors are that there were between 700 to 1000 balloons lifting off this morning. We were constantly marveling at the scenes surrounding us. Hope you enjoy the photos.
Also added a few from our afternoon visit to Old Town.
