Guten Morgen Refo! After a a rocky weekend .....
...... (to much rain on Saturday and non favorable wind conditions on Sunday), the International Balloon Fiesta here in Albuquerque, NM is in full swing.
Going out to the field in the early hours of the morning to watch the balloons inflate and take of is an experience I believe everybody has to be part of someday.
But even if one can't make it out there, the balloons are seen floating all over the city.
It's a beautiful sight indeed!
What a wonderful morning!
