Well it was time to get up with the chickens this morning and head off to the airport. Actually, to be technically correct, our chicken (Agnes) was still asleep when we left. But when you live 1.5 hours from the airport and you have a 6 AM flight, that’s just what you have to do.
We are off the Albuquerque today. Hopefully we’ll have some good weather and get a chance to really go “up, up and away” at this ballooning hotspot. But there’s a lot more to do besides ballooning in Albuquerque, including a bevy of museums, nearby pueblos, the Sandia Peak tram, the Turquoise Trail and a nice accessible trail that I just located.
All in all, I’m looking forward to it. And I expect to come home with a notebook full of accessible gems.
