This isn’t your typical Drivelapse drive. On October 11, 2014, a terrible traffic jam on the way to Balloon Fiesta Park left me stuck for hours on Interstate 25. Frustrated, I watched the Mass Ascension from the freeway. A few balloons landed near the Interstate, which got me thinking, “where are all the other balloons landing?”

I drove up I-25 to the Bernalillo exit, then hopped over to New Mexico 313, and drove south, back towards Balloon Fiesta Park. Within minutes, dozens of hot-air balloons were landing nearby — some were even on the road!

I got out of the car a few times to take pictures. At one point in this video, you’ll see no balloons in front of me, and then suddenly, dozens! While I was out of my car, they landed all around.

Even though I missed the typical Balloon Fiesta experience at the park that day, I got to see something even more incredible.
