2011 ABQ Balloon Fiesta
October 1, 2011

Day one of the 2011 Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta - year 40!

I just happened to wake up early-ish on Saturday and thought, hey, if we can get moving perhaps we'll be able to see the balloons go up. So, not really knowing exactly where the balloon launch park was, I drove where I thought we'd be able to see. That's where I got the first two shots of balloons in silhouette against the mountains. Then, we thought we'd try to get closer ... and boy was I surprised to get some of these shots from my car. (Because I was still in my PJ bottoms and didn't want to get out of the car.)
