The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta is going to be here before we know it. This year it runs from October 7th to October 15th. Two of my favorite events are the Special Shape Glowdeo and the Special Shapes Mass Ascension. Here’s this years calendar of events.
Balloon Fiesta is one of my favorite happenings in Albuquerque. While it is a whole lot of fun to go down to Balloon Fiesta Park and see the mass ascensions ( 100’s of balloons all going up at once) you can actually see the balloons from all over the city. Hundreds of hot air balloons flying all at once is an amazing sight.
I like rainy day. I love the smell of the rain especially here in the desert. It smells good everywhere but it’s a bit different here. That said, I was so glad I didn’t have to get out of the truck one this particular day as it was cold and windy.
I didn’t realize how long it’s been since I posted. This was taken through the truck windshield on San Pedro NE as we ran into yet another cluster of road work as we were trying to avoid the roadwork that hung us up for an hour and 45 minutes yesterday. Every single major road that we need to take to get from North Albuquerque down to South Albuquerque is torn up. Why did they have to do EVERY single road at the same time? DUMB
This is the Albuquerque Sunport and I was heading to the gate for a flight to NY. I often feel slightly out of focus when I travel.

When I drove south on Carlisle today the helicopter was parked in its spot. When I was driving back north on Carlisle a while later it was landing.
This bumper sticker speaks for itself.
I love when folks think outside the box and come up with unique Christmas/Holiday decorations. This was parked but if they drive it around Albuquerque you can be sure they are spreading holiday cheer along the way.

First snow of the season today. Was a bit surprised to have to clean off the car when I went to leave the house. Driving was ok this afternoon.
The nice thing about snow in Albuquerque is that it is usually gone in a day.
