We were there last Saturday morning for the launch. We stopped for an hour or two in the parking lot of a Starbucks in Rio Rancho, and the prevailing winds sent the balloons right over head. I had checked the weather report the night before, and figured that place was a likely fly over spot.
Quite nice, really.

Well, the weather turned out much nicer than was forecast. I think the balloons have launched every day except one. I love that about Albuquerque, if you don't like the weather now, just blink and it will change. They are calling for heavy snow Sunday night into Monday for the northern half of the state. Be safe in your travels.
