Nothing embodies "life at a higher level" more completely than an balloon ride at dawn in our crisp, clear mountain air.  Nor provides a more unique thrill than a dip down below the canyon rim some 650 feet to touch the Rio Grande.  No activity is more intimately linked to New Mexico than ballooning, and Taos offers not only two professional outfitters, Eske's paradise Balloons and The Pueblo Balloon Company, but also the charm of it's own Taos Mountain Balloon Rally each October.  Bring the family and get up close and personal with the balloonists for this fun 4-day annual event, currently being held on Salazar Road across from Filemon Sanchez Park.
