9/29/15-10/12/15 Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta

Wow, what an event!!  It was life-changing, and I'm not exaggerating when I say that. I crewed every single day, which meant the alarm going off at 4:30am every morning. I never intended to crew every day, but it was just so much fun that I couldn't stay away.  I got to the Fiesta a few days early as that's what most Boomers do, the Fiesta didn't start till the 2nd. However, we did go out training with our pilot on 10/1.  The first few days were just disgustingly hot. I ended up running the gen a few times for A/C. It cooled off a bit as the week went on, which was very welcome.  Here's a link to some of the photos I took:

But just in case you can't be bothered to click, here's my favorite.
