Cool Fall Days and Crisp Fall Nights
Hello All! I hope everyone is doing well at their end of the keyboard. We are experiencing some beautiful Fall days here in Albuquerque, NM and the Balloon Fiesta is in full swing, adding glorious color to our cool morning skies. If you have never attended the Balloon Fiesta, I would highly recommend putting it on your future "to do" list. People come from all over the world to experience this grand event. I am also told it is one of the few ballooning events that allow people to walk onto the inflation area and experience an "up close" view of the hot air balloons as they fill with air and begin to take shape. It is truly incredible to stand amidst the balloons as they are laid out and then within minutes be surrounded by a surreal garden of bright colors and unique shapes as they bloom into life. Breathtaking!
