The Mass Ascension was sight to behold.  We imagined it was going to be something special, but even our wildest imagination fell far short. Hundreds of bright colorful balloons drifting away.  It was like poetry in motion.  We love to travel around and not see the same place over again but right after we saw …

The Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta is a feast for the senses.  A spectacle almost beyond imagination.  Very few things live up to the hype, but I can honestly say that the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta not only lived up to our expectations but surpassed it.
