Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta - Albuquerque, NM 56 degrees partly cloudy. Over night there was a rain and wind blowing and more "weather" this afternoon and thru Friday. Forty years Albuquerque has been doing a balloon fiesta.
|40 years of ballooning for Albuquerque|
|First balloon of the daylight carries the flag|
|The first inflation is with a high volume fan|
The total trip today was two hundred and sixteen miles to Roswell. There was some rain on the windshield while traveling south on US 285. The rain was enough to use the wipers for a while. Once the inflation on the ground is complete the propane burner is used to finish filling and stand the balloon up.
Saturday thru Monday there were at least one hundred pictures on each camera. Monday my camera maxed out at one hundred thirty four pictures, no memory remaining.
|You can the RV's are parked close together and balloons are trying to come in|
