Rocky Mountains in NM

Being in the New Mexico Rocky mountains called the “Sandia’s” reminded SMARTee of his home in the Rocky mountains of Canada where we all traveled this summer.  He got to explore the northern part of the mountain range this summer and now got a chance to see the very southern part of the mountain range.  Sandia means watermelon in Spanish, the mountains are called this because they turn pink at sunset.  Sandia Peak Tramway  Rocky Mountain Rangedownload (26) images (5)IMG_20151016_113049742 IMG_20151016_113645062 IMG_20151016_113648131

International Balloon Fiesta

SMARTee felt so at home as a world traveler getting to see over 700 hot air balloons from around the world!  He even found some cool treats to send to his student friends around the world!  Check out these cool links from SMARTee’s new pilot friend!  This will answer lots of questions about hot air balloons and goes through a day in the life of a balloon pilot.  Maybe next year SMARTee can travel to his next destination by balloon?  Balloon Questions from Kids    day of a balloon pilot  ABQ International Balloon Fiesta
