Balloon Fiesta rocks Albuquerque each year, and Lindsey and I decided to make a trek down south to catch the giant sacks of hot air. Sandia Peak overlooks the city, and the La Luz trail provides a great opportunity to check out that amazing Albuquerque countryside (right..). Really though, the blooming cactus flowers and dramatic panoramas were very picturesque, and although we didn't make it the entire 8 mile hike, we managed to summit a small peak along the way.

Waking up at the crack of dawn we saw the mass ascension - luckily. Due to strong winds we weren't sure if they would be able to launch or not. Fortunately our luck pulled thorough and we got to watch the balloons rise towards the New Mexican sun with our stomachs filled with breakfast burritos made with authentic green chili - a very righteous moment. A terrific visit.
