I know what you are thinking "That's a 6.5 hour drive for just 1 day???" It's was totally worth it.
Even though we didn't get to sleep until 2am and had to get up at 5:30am to get on a bus to the event, we had a ton of fun. Just look for yourself.
|There were tons of people in line for the buses.|
If you ever have a chance to attend the Albuquerque Balloon Festival, DO IT. We will definitely do it again, maybe not next year, but definitely in the next few years. Next time, we will definitely take at least a few extra days so that we can sleep. :)
