Albuquerque Again

Uneventful ride from Mesa Verde to Albuquerque
Uneventful ride from Mesa Verde to Albuquerque

We can see the Balloon Fiesta Park from I-25 as we come into Albuquerque and it is clear that we will be racing a thunderstorm to our camping spot.  We had a mercifully uneventful and crisply clear ride down from Mesa Verde so what is the deal with the rain?  I take this as a sign that I am seriously out of practice as Weather Goddess and flex my sunny muscles in order to drive away the approaching tropical storm predicted to dump a ton of rain on the canyon.  I am delighted to report that I have not lost my touch and the storm alters it course to avoid us on its journey northeast.  I hope this is a good omen for the Balloon Fiesta weather.  I intend to stay in practice just in case.

I will report on our progress as Balloon Fiesta volunteers in a later post because we have been busy sightseeing and I want to share with you.  Storm checked out the car show on the Balloon Festival field below our campsite while I attended a Fiesta sponsored CPR class this morning.  Our afternoon in Old Town (downtown Albuquerque) was so colorful and fun that I am dying to share our pictures so without further ado here they are:
