Oct 5-13 was the International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta here in Albuquerque.
It's the biggest international balloon fiesta in the world.
And more importantly Becky came to visit me. I know it was ages ago but I'm writing it now. Oh well.
We found Derek!
The government shutdown meant no charge for parking when we went on our hike to the Sandia Moutains. Also no bathrooms.
It was pretty cold.
It was Fall up there and really pretty.
The above photo credits all go to Becky - thanks!
I only had Friday off and had to work the weekend, so I participated in the opening balloon launch vicariously through John and Becky. Unfortunately I don't have those pictures.
The rest of the weekend was great too even though I was working, I got done pretty early and we had plenty of time for Albuquerque adventures.
