Living in New Mexico happens to be especially wonderful in October, when the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta starts. It's held annually starting the first full weekend in October and lasts for 11 days. Pilots from all over the world come here to fly and race and compete for prizes. It's a tremendous amount of fun and my humble pictures don't begin to do it justice. But that won't stop me from trying!!
Well finally!! I've had these newest ones uploaded and ready to go for the longest time, I just had to put them here, on this page. Well guess what? They're here! Yippee!!
