And The Balloons... They Didn't Fly

We made the trek to Albquerque this morning at 4:45 AM to see the Balloons launch at the Fiesta. About half way there a light rain began to fall and I knew we might be in trouble. A stop at a local grocery story didn't fare much better as the cashier told me she thought they had already been cancelled.

We made it to the park and rode the shuttle down to the area and unpacked all our gear only to hear "No flights this morning because of the rain". We were disappointed, but then the weather turned even worse with lightening and heavy downpours.
We consoled ourselves at Cracker Barrell and then made our way to the Old Town area for some shopping and sight seeing.
A long day--but a fun day was had by all.
