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!
