Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta Day 3, Albuquerque, NM - October 10, 2017

Yesterday was festival day 3. Saturday and Sunday was opening weekend and there were things happening all day, each day. Now Monday, just a few things happening in the morning. The wind was blowing away from our RV parking lot again so I walked to balloon field and took my last pics of the balloons.

OK .... I'm done taking balloon pictures now.

Then Donna and I went to check out the Balloon Museum. Pretty amazing! The place was big and packed with balloon history and stuff.

Well worth the admission ($6.00). A great museum.

Then we headed off to another museum I wanted to see, the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History. This place was awesome! It had everything from splitting the atom, the Manhatten Project, the bombs created and used over Japan, to military uses of nuclear technology, and medical uses as well. It had everything you can think of that benefitted from the nuclear discoveries. I especially liked the outdoor aircraft displays.

Los Alamos lab

The Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombs

Trinity bomb




Two cool museums in one day. How cool is that!

Colder weather is comming and we have seen about all we have came to see, so we are leaving Albuquerque this morning.

Continuing southward.

Fergs .... out!
