Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta - Albuquerque, NM

Monday, October 3, 2011
Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta - Albuquerque, NM 56 degrees mostly sunny to 75 degrees and mostly sunny. Attending the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta with the Escapees Boomer group has been great as their experiences are a big help to those of us who are first time people.

Early liftoff
Also the advice of arriving early in the week prior was a great advantage learning the lay of the land. Then visiting the balloon museum before the fiesta crowd rush is also an advantage.
RV field landing

The rig parking location is also very good, there are a lot of rigs here and this area keeps the other traffic past our rigs to a minimum, and the dust low.

Special shape

Just after seven this morning until almost eleven, balloons are going up on the launch field and some balloons are coming back down on the RV field.

All types of balloons regular and special shapes.

They just keep coming up
