I've never heard of the one in Gallup before, I know Alabama has one but Albuquerque takes it a little too far, its everywhere on every little knick knack and even our license plates, they get annoying after a while.

Has someone taken over desert sun's handle? Your vernacular seems different lately.

The Gallup balloon race has been going on for years. Albuquerque has the biggest and probably oldest rally - HUNDREDS of balloons!
The Alabama Jubilee Hot-Air Balloon Classic in Decatur, Alabama, has only taken place for 32 years...slightly less than ABQ's.

I think New Mexico is famous for the Trinity test,"Aliens" in Roswell, and "Breaking Bad" among other things like the Balloon Fiesta.

Although many people say sunsets my favorite is sunrise. There's a color on some mornings that is so beautiful and it creates a pink glow all around you.
