It must be Balloon Fiesta because it began raining Saturday afternoon and hasn’t really stopped yet. It seriously hasn’t rained since July and the advent of Fiesta brings rain every year. It’s ridiculous. Anyway, I am triply glad I got my lazy ass up Friday morning at 5:30am to go see a couple of balloons set up and take off. Because I am a dedicated Albuquerquian, I took pix for you all to enjoy. It was still kind of dark at 6:45, so the pictures are a bit grainy and you will deal with it. Please note that hot air balloons get great mileage as long as you don’t care where you go.
Pix after the jump!
