Albuquerque Balloon Festival

First - Hope this doesn't show up twice as the first one disappeared into cyberland.

Leaving Thursday evening, Oct. 1st. Going to the festival. Will stay with a friend where we can look down over the lift off area.

Will also attend the symphony, ride the cable car up the mountain, take the train to Santa Fe. Don't know what else we will do.

On the way I want to stop at the cross close to Amarillo and go thru the area and take pictures.

Are you going to go up in a balloon? When I lived in Albq. we had friends that owned balloons, I was able to go up in a balloon that looked like a world globe and a "remax" real estate balloon.
We did the contest to see who could get closest to touching the Rio Grande river. We did not come close. That was back in the early 80s, I dont know if they do that anymore.
The mass ascension is truely something to see and hear. beautiful thing to watch.

**a little trivia, did you know that the Albq balloon festival is the most photographed event in the world**
