Balloon Fiesta in pictures

We have been at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta for only two and a half days, and I am feeling overwhelmed by the number of pictures I want to share and stories about what we are doing. 

I have decided to start the week by sharing eleven of our favorite pictures, with nothing more than captions.


Morning starts with the launch of the dawn patrol balloons, 
which provide wind information for the others.


Balloons crowd the field waiting for their turn to launch




The captain of this balloon took her boots off and walked into the balloon to adjust something as it was being inflated


Fly me to the moon!


Make room!

I see you!

Overhead


Ribbet!


Police brutality?

If it has wheels and leveling jacks, is it an RV?

  5. Amazing pictures. We have other friends who are there and I love seeing all the pictures. Would love to see it - just not sure I could handle all the people.

  10. Thanks for sharing. We have been four times, the latest just last year, and would go again. It is just breathtaking. Enjoy! Crowds are not that bad, everyone! And you can see a lot from across the highway.
