Balloons and timeless art

Took a quick long weekend trip to Albuquerque to visit Dad. He lives right near when the balloons take off in the Albuquerque balloon fiesta.

We got to see what looked to be a couple hundred hot air balloons hovering overhead. There were some interesting ones including bottles and a flying pig. Yes, I've now seen a pig fly! It was a really cool site.

We took a trip to Santa Fe to walk around the square, browse and check out modern art.

Then we decided to check out Petroglyph National Monument to check timeless (historic) art done close to a thousand years ago. It was really beautiful and they were nice little hikes. When I have more time, I'd like to check out some of the other hikes!
