truly an awesome thing to witness....Saturday [10th] morning was perfect weather and all balloons launched...the shapes and sizes and colors are works of really have to be coverage doesn't do it justice....and camping on site is a must...the busses get priority over other traffic and you are in an out no sweat....and its very very crowded....equiv. to a super bowl game crowd every day. .

You can't make things idiot proof, you can only make them idiot resistant.

Yeppers, I would say the Albuquerque Balloon Fest is one of the many wonders in America.
We stayed in the Presidential Camp area an could easily walk on and off the field multiple times a day. Even if you don't stay in this area you should take the time to walk(ride) up there, its up on the bluff behind all the booths. There is a small grass area with a few picnic tables to over look all the going on, morning dawn patrol was spectacular.
Many memories and definitely a go back to....
