The Magical Mystery of Morning Balloons

October 11, 2017

Seeing the dawn patrol balloons fill and glow and rise into the crisp morning sky was magical and surreal, like watching an animated movie with billion dollar special effects, only this was real life! We watched them with wonder as they flew through the dark, and filled with fire every few seconds. The sight and the feeling was outdone only by the mass ascension when row after row of these air-filled works of art floated above us, and beyond us, and all around. Pictures cannot do it justice, though apparently, the Albuquerque Balloon festival is the most photographed event on earth.
