A balloon during Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta, fly's north of the field a few miles and lands on
New Mexico State Highway 313 near the town of Bernalillo.

A long time friend (+40 years) use to fly a balloon from ABQ. I was on his crew briefly... He retired and now he has a boat. I've gotten to chasing balloons, watch them landing, then rush to a nearby restaurant to eat before the crews fill the restaurants... Some of my related videos on YouTube: Balloons ABQ Area

Nope, I did not try to eat any, but I did ask. Amazingly, they really smell like chocolate!

Thanks for posting. It's a small park on a busy street. A lot of people never notice it.

First time I've come across a forces' memorial in the US that's been vandalised (not that uncommon in the UK), the plaque was still missing when I was there a couple of weeks ago.
