Beyond Texas - steve-coyle

Up, Up and Away

It's hard to believe that October is here again and in Albuquerque, New Mexico they are once again preparing for their annual balloon festival. This year's celebration begins next weekend, so I thought in honor of the upcoming event I'd share this image I captured a few years ago when we were there. I believe this image provides you with a pretty good idea of what it's like to be there. It is an amazing sight watching hundreds of balloons lift off during the dawn ascension. Something that was on my bucket list and I'm glad to have it checked off. :-)
