    • • • Albuquerque Hot Air Balloon Festival • • • Waking up early to see Hot Air balloons take off makes me so unbelievably happy! 😊 • • • I have felt very guarded the last few weeks with my emotions regarding my Mom & her health. It's been so hard and no one should see a parent suffer. Seeing these bad boys ^ 🎈made me feel so cheerful & even if it just for a moment it lifted a bit of the darkness I had been feeling . I've been getting some questions about my Mom ❤️ She recently was moved out of the ICU and although she is still in the hospital and still has a long way to go hopes are high because for the first time in a long time we are seeing some sort of progression! 😊🙌🏼 Thank you so much everyone for the good thoughts & prayers ❤️❤️❤️ It seriously means the world! #newmexicoskies #albuquerque #albuquerqueinternationalballoonfiesta #hotairballoon #newmexico #hotairballoons #keepingfaith #newmexicoweddingphotographer #sundanceballoons #hotairballooning #teamportertravels #albuquerquephotographer #newmexicotrue #albuquerqueseniorphotographer #hotairballoonride #albuquerqueballoonfiesta #crossingmyfingers #newmexicoweddingvideographer #teamlukestine #newmexicolove #visitalbuquerque #teamporternewmexico #rainbowriders #hotairballoonparty #newmexicowedding #hotairballoonfestival

    This morning, on the final day of Balloon Fiesta, the winds were too strong to ensure safe flight so no balloons launched. This is in stark constrast to yesterday when there were barely any winds at all. Pictured here, from yesterday, are a couple of flags indicating the lack of wind. Perhaps I should've taken a picture of the flags flapping helpelessly in the wind today but, I decided to seek refuge in my car instead! A pity that today's event had been cut short, and many people missed out but, there's next #discoveramerica #balloon #fiesta #albuquerque #newmexico #hotairballoon #hotairballoons #albuquerquenm #nm #balloonfiesta #festival #visitnewmexico #flying #takeflight #flight #abq #balloons #amaerican #visitalbuquerque #hotair #flags #americanflag #travel #seelikeaphotographer

    Crowded airspace. Having little to no winds makes any balloon festival a spectacle for the eyes. However, if the balloons aren't moving far, the situation starts to get a bit crowded. Pilots must exercise caution when flying. Balloons can touch fabric to fabric but, never basket to fabric. Today's mass ascension at Balloon Fiesta was just like that. #balloon #fiesta #albuquerque #newmexico #hotairballoon #blueskies #people #nm #hotairballoons #albuquerquenm #colorsofthewind #balloonfiesta #festival #patterns #visitnewmexico #flying #colors #basket #flight #abq #balloons #visitalbuquerque #flyingpeople #travel

    I’m sitting solo, at a table set for four (which makes me feel guilty when there’s a huge line of diners waiting), with dishes full of fresh house-made guacamole and salsa, sopapillas with locally sourced honey and cheese enchiladas. There are photographs of Hillary Clinton, Snoop Dog and Katy Perry on the walls inside, charming the full house of chatty eaters, but out here on the patio there’s a fire crackling, bistro lights and big chilies strung above my table, and the faint sounds of boisterous mariachi musicians. Ps. Not only am I the only one at this beautiful restaurant enjoying a delectable meal alone, but also, I’m the only one with a fancy white table cloth. #visitabq #albuquerque #hillaryclinton #abq #newmexico #mariachi #visitalbuquerque #elpinto #elpintorestaurant

    This was such a beautiful ride-no boring nose-to-tail trail riding here. This was a great way to explore a new area that I’ve never seen before! I saw elk tracks, the Rio Grande River, little lizards and plenty of wide open spaces-just the way the Dixie Chicks intended. Plus, most of these beauties are rescued horses! #visitalbuquerque #visitabq #albuquerque #trueabq #stablesattamaya #tamaya
