Basket of…Admireables

At Albuquerque’s International Balloon Fiesta, during the Morning Ascensions, the first wave of hot-air balloons to launch are those that are piloted for sky-tourists.

Sky Tourists

Hundreds of hot-air balloons are enjoyed from the ground as well as from the air. Some are piloted by balloonists who fill crews with friends and family. Others are balloons-for-hire that offer paid passengers memorable rides in the sky.  This rectangular basket is brimming with such bucket-listers.

If you are planing a visit to New Mexico, be aware that rides on balloons-for-hire are possible throughout the year, not only during the annual Fiesta in October.
