Jetted off to Albuquerque, New Mexico for the 2011 Festival of Balloons. It’s one of the largest such Evers in the world, and due to it’s vibrant colors, intricate balloon patterns, and clear sky- it also holds claim as the World’s Most Photographed event! (want proof? go into any photography store and I guarantee a big number of the cameras use HD pictures from the event as advertising for what they are capable of).
Now, since arriving in ABQ, it’s been nothing but raining here- almost as if the weather from Portland followed my plane here. In fact, the infamous “Oregon Cloud” (that single, state covering cloud we get in Portland) followed as well, including the droopy rain.
Anyways, today it’s sunny, 70 degrees, and we’re all hoping the weather holds out for tonight’s “glow” (when all the hot air balloons are lit up) especially hoping that it holds out for the fireworks.
Met up with some family out here- a couple of nephews, dad, etc… Been pretty fun. In fact my little nephew is bugging me now for some milk, so I got to cut this short and help the little guy find his bottle! More updates later!
