We woke up on Sunday morning to a sky full of hot air balloons. Well, there were nine balloons in all, instead of the usual much bigger Mesilla Valley Hot Air Balloon Rally which has been cancelled for the last couple of years because of ballooning costs (sorry, I couldn't resist a little word play). The big excitement on Sunday was that although they appeared to have taken off in the southern part of the Mesilla Valley, they were headed north and right for our neighborhood, landing in the field across the street.
I'm afraid that these photos aren't particularly impressive--it was a situation where you had to be right here on our patio to enjoy all the excitement.
