October is a good time in Albuquerque because the weather is good and it's a good rest break between climbing/bikig season and skiing season. On Oct 4th, I biked out the the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta with some nob hill friends, including Kelley, Mike, Mike, Allison, Ben, Luke, Louie. The chilly ride was worth it to kick off the week long balloon fiesta in style.

That evening was the AMRC brewfest. I volunteered to man the silent auction and pack up gear - but still had plenty of time to socialize and try the Trident's Spirit Ale.

The following weekend Paul and Pearl visited. We headed out to the balloon fiesta for the mass ascension and the night glow. Leigh stopped over for some BBQing Saturday night, and we hiked around on the Sandia Crest Trail past the Kawanis Cabin. It was good to see my old Boulder friends again! The last time I saw them was at their wedding in VT a year ago.
