It seems the girls and I, though disappointed to have missed the evening glow, really lucked out at the Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque last week! The weather turned bad midday on opening day (our ONLY day) at Fiesta, so the afternoon balloon race launch and evening glow were both canceled, but the fireworks still went off without a hitch before we took off for home.
It appears those of us who rose early for the first morning were the most fortunate of the lot this year. The closing weekend's events were canceled entirely (except for the vending booths - they, of course, remained open for business). The fun shapes glow went on, but it doesn't look like many other flights went off.
So glad we stuck around New Mexico for it, and lucked out with the weather!
