Hot Air Balloons Rio Grande New Mexico

This photo is a flashback to our 7-week honeymoon road trip across America. One of our favorite experiences during the trip was taking a hot air balloon ride in Albuquerque, New Mexico. This photo was taken while we were up in the air, romantically floating above the arid desert below. We hope to make it back to New Mexico one day for their annual hot air balloon festival, but in the mean time, reminiscing with this photo will have to do!

    • I’m not the bravest when it comes to heights but it’s not so bad. It’s actually quite peaceful :-)

  1. LOVE this photo! We’re a bit obsessed with hot air balloons. We were married in one back in 2002. Well, the basket anyway since it was too windy that day for the flight. We’ve actually still never been on a balloon flight together. Hopefully one day soon!

    • That’s so cool!! I hope you get the chance to take a ride someday. They are a pretty remarkable way to travel.

  2. I love photos with hot air balloons. But I feel like being in one would be the scariest thing in the world. Stuff that’s up high is scary. =\
