We scanned the skies with rainbow eyes

It's Balloon Fiesta time again in Albuquerque.
The first photo is from my cell phone at work.






See here for my special balloon ride!

How exciting! Probably not as exciting as your actual ride. The big desert sky must make that a glorious sight!

It is a beautiful sight and it's amazing how big the balloons really are! When you see them in the sky they seem so small but when you are on the ground they tower above you.

It's a good thing you stayed in bed on Friday, Lisa. Unfortunately, Friday morning there was a fatality when one of the balloons got caught up in power lines. Then, Saturday and Sunday, all events were cancelled due to high winds and bad weather. I guess this balloon fiesta went "bust".
