The Fiesta Continues . . .

Albuquerque, New Mexico

sunny 80 °F

Another day of Hot Air Balloons, but today we went to another place to watch. There were so many balloons that, when you are on the ground with them, you can't begin to see them all. So we went to a higher elevation to watch from afar. It was another perfect balloon day and the box effect was performing beautifully, so the balloons just floated around in front of us for 2 hours before we left!
There they go!

There they go!

How many balloons?

We took a scenic ride to Jemez Springs, a little Pueblo town in a beautiful wooded canyon area. It was a great drive with beautiful red rock canyon walls and a really neat Soda Dam. The soda dam is forming from the minerals in the hot springs in the area and continuing to grow. It reminded us of Yellowstone.

When we came back Steve and Donna introduced us to their favorite Mexican restaurant and we had a wonderful meal before returning home.
This evening there was the last potluck dinner at the campground. It was a soup and salad meal with entertainment and there was a great turnout!
We were so glad that we had gone to see the evening activities at Balloon Park last night because it was very windy tonight and I can't imagine much went on down there ;(.
The weather was beautiful again, 50s in the morning, 80 for a high and, of course, sunny!
