Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta 2010
2010 Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta

This year, Ron volunteered as crew for the Balloon "Mixolydian Dream", owned by Jeff and Robyn Ashworth. As crew, he was tasked with helping setup, launch, and recover the balloon daily. He was not able to crew every day of the Fiesta, but he did participate most mornings and a few evening Glows. Since he was occupied with his crew duties, he was not able to take as many photos of the overall Fiesta, but he was able to get photos from a whole different perspective of the event.

Here are the photos he took over the week of activities. Camera = Canon 450D/Xsi

Ron got to go up in the balloon one day and of course, did not have his camera. He did have his cell phone and snapped a few photos:
