Nice! My favorite part of balloon fiesta is random landings all over the city.

How does it go again ... a balloon in the street is worth two in the bush?

That has to be the part of Balloon Fiesta I loved the most when I lived in Albuquerque. I can remember a wind-change on an early Sunday morning mass ascension that sent dozens of balloons South-SouthEast into my neighborhood as I walked out of my crappy apartment at San Mateo and Osuna. A couple landed on the golf course and one even landed in the Cliff's parking lot. I'm sure it was unsettling for the pilots but it was amazing to walk out my door and see what looked like a sky completely full of huge balloons silently (-ish...) sailing toward me.
