Beautiful sky and capture!! The guy here told me on the 8 people basket that they have champage and finger food on those flights! Sounds like a plan to me someday to do!! #1497071

Then you have to do it Tammy. There were balloon rides being given at Albuquerque too....didn't see the champagne but I bet it was a thrill for those who wanted to do it!......never now...I may change my mind one day.

Thank you so much Thomas & Terry....the sky got progressively cloudier and windier. There was no evening glow that night. The next day (October 12th) was a complete wash...no flying at all. They did have the fireworks show at night however....didn't go to that. Saturday's pix coming up are a different story...flying the in the morning & evening glow actually did happen! hip hip hurrah! #10411137
