The beginning of October a few of my best friends went on a road trip to visit one of our dear friends Sarah. After graduation, Sarah moved out to ABQ to work for a church that we do missions with. How cool! We strategically planned to visit during the weekend of the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. It was a surreal experience seeing hundreds of hot air balloons fill up the sky. I’d definitely recommend going.
Our first half day in ABQ we had some time to kill, so we went and found Walter White’s house from the show Breaking Bad. The family who owns the house has lived there for more than 30 years. Note all the NO TRESPASSING signs. They were serious about it.
We also found Jesse Pinkman’s house (supposedly). My friends Sarah and Callista were a little excited.
We got to the fairgrounds for the mass ascension at 4 a.m. It was so worth it despite being a little cold and tired. This shot was before sunrise.
The Sandia mountains before sunrise.

Finally the mass ascension!
