See You in Albuquerque

To be honest, UWanderings probably won’t make it there this year, but we went a couple years ago and had a blast. If you catch yourself in the ABQ in early October each year, you might wake up early enough to notice hot air balloons floating around the city. Morning is the best time for ballooning due to air temperature.
It’s a bizarre feeling watching a balloon hover over you while driving on Interstate 25 as you’re heading to the Fiesta’s fairgrounds, where you can get local eats and buy cool souvenirs at any one of the tented venues. A must see if you’re there; a must do if you’re a ballooning enthusiast.
This year’s Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta is from October 7-15, 2017. See the link below for more details.
