SNAPPED: Wyoming repped at Albq. balloon fest

ALBUQUERQUE, Nm. — Every year in October, hundreds of huge, vibrant balloons dot the sky in Albuquerque, New Mexico for the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta®.

The fiesta lasts nine days and features balloons from all over the world. This year, of the 580 balloons in the sky, a recognizable figure stood out in the mix: Wyoming’s bucking horse and rider.

Michele Voorhees sent these photos of a taste of Wyoming painting Albuquerque’s skies.
