Darrell & I took a trip to New Mexico the first week of Oct. 06, to visit Darrell's cousin & family, and to see the balloon fiesta for the first time. We also visited Santa Fe and Taos. There is so much to see in NM, we'll be going back, for sure!

These petroglyphs are located right behind Dick and Marcia's home in Albuquerque

Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta

Wayne & Jeannie have crewed for this balloon for the last 5yrs...they're also our daughter-in-law's mom & dad.

Marcia and Melinda had to get up at "0'dark:30" to get to the balloon park.

Mounted police and mounts enjoy the show.

Aliens among us.

This is just part of the 1,000 balloonists at the Fiesta
