We thoroughly enjoyed the weekend! We knew no one when we arrived on Friday morning but by Friday evening we had made great friends. We are so very thankful to everyone for helping us with our challenges and making us feel like one of the group. Can't wait to go back! (Is there a 12 step program for rally withdrawal?)

Today I was invited to ride on "Whirlaway", the balloon for which Cindy and I chased this week. Here's some pictures from the flight....

As we launched early in the first wave, we were treated to the sight of hundreds of balloons bubbling up off the field.





We landed in a field just past the RV parking on the other side of the highway. As we were stowing Whirlaway, Darth Vader landed just behind us.



And - just a couple more shots I thought were fun - solar eclipses by balloon. The first one from Saturday, and the second from today's competition.

Very nice photos everyone - well done!

I just wanted to drop in and thank everyone for making us feel welcome. The whole event was superb and a BIG thank you needs to go out to Ken and his crew for the tremendous job they did!

We were is a section that did not have a generator issue at all that I knew of. Even throw we had people running them, they were always most considerate of others. Our only problem was to many people having to much fun.... WHAT A SUPURB EVENT!!

Here's a few images I hope someone will enjoy......

Have to post: what a fabulous, fantastic, gorgeous, totally surreal and unbelievably wonderful event! We'll be back next year for sure--between the Vintage Trailer Academy and Balloon Fiesta, ALBQ is our destination of choice!

We met great Airstreamers, had a superb time, and we have to thank Ken and his crew for excellent organization.

Overall: WOW!!

Yes Ken, we so agree with you! We loved our first Balloon Fiesta rally, it was magical being down on the field looking up at the balloons and then again just watching them fly overhead from our trailer! Where else could you do this? It was fantastic and we will enjoy our memories of it and the hundreds of pictures I took for years to come. Thank-you Ken and company for your hard work in organizing and beautifully pulling off such an undertaking!! We would love to come again, maybe for the 10th anniversary. We so enjoyed meeting all our great neighbors and had something in common with everyone. Thanks to all of you as well!Click image for larger version

timmaah, excellent observation about the people walking through your area talking loudly at 5 AM. Maybe we can do something about that next year.

Good photos, too. Thanks.

Great Photos Timmaah!

Thanks for taking all those wonderful photos and thanks for posting!
P.S. I have a plan for directing the pedestrians (who park south of us) around the front of the Balloon Museum to the sidewalk that wraps around the front and east side of the Balloon Museum.

Problem was the RV lot wasn't full so the first 100 or so cars to enter got parked behind us with no direction as how to get down to the field. They needed a corridor or something on the west side of the museum.

Our truck parked sideways with our windsock blocking off a few feet got most of the people into the museum parking lot.
