Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta - Oct 6-15,2006

The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta is an annual event held every fall. This year featured over 7,000 hot air balloons from all over the world.
We were guests of our good friends from Albuquerque, Jerry and Kathy Millspaugh and the Alphine Lite Travel Club. Our guest accommodations put our Motor Home on the very front row. We were able to walk to all the events and enjoyed seeing the massive balloons flying right over our motor home.

We had to get up at 5 AM to walk over to see the early morning Mass Ascentions. It was a spectacular sight to see thousands of hot air ballons being blown up by all the crews.

The "special shapes" ballons were awesome, and we especially loved this one!
