New Mexico - Day 4 - Hot Air Balloon Flight & Old Town Albuquerque
6 April 2015
The highlight of the New Mexico trip occurred early Monday morning when we took off in a hot air balloon! We got up early to be shuttled out to the launch site before a flight over the Rio Grande. Our pilot even managed to land us squarely at Balloon Fiesta Park. The other balloons flying that morning landed in the desert and on Indian land. I wish the flight was longer than just an hour. Once we were back on solid ground, we took a walking tour of Old Town Albuquerque. In the evening we checked out Route 66 after dark.
