Balloon Fiesta

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.  

Road Work and Detours

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
