We flew from Reno to Albuquerque, New Mexico, to attend the week long Hot Air Balloon Fiesta, staying with good friends John and Lee Reeve. We could watch the morning ascensions from their beautiful hillside home, and were delighted to attend in person during an evening to experience the “glow”. The glow is held every evening winds permitting, where all the hot air balloons are inflated and then light up beautifully as the the torch flames are pointed inside the balloon. It was an exciting and gorgeous event. Pictured are hosts Lee and John with Bob as they discover “Annabelle” the cow. Many balloons are built in the shapes of animals, cartoon characters and toys. It is a great event and enjoyed by young and old alike.
