You've never seen hot air balloons like this before. A couple weeks ago, Albuquerque, New Mexico held its 42nd annual International Balloon Fiesta. It's a 9-day event where over 700 balloons see liftoff. It's the largest hot air balloon festival in the entire world and we were on hand to capture the action.


This was shot on location by Roadtrippers' own traveling photographer Joel Schat. He's travels North America capturing all the amazingly beautiful things that can be found on the road. Find more pictures and timelapses from Joel on his website.
