Balloons Over Angel Fire
Watch a field of hot-air balloons at sunrise as they gracefully float up into the cool morning air of the Moreno Valley. Balloons Over Angel Fire is one of the few high-mountain hot-air balloon events in the country. Learn how the balloons work, talk to the pilots, take lots of pictures and spend Father's Day weekend enjoying the laid-back pace of Angel Fire.
Saturday evening brings the spectacular balloon glow - when the pilots illuminate their balloons like enormous, colorful glowing bulbs. The valley floor transforms into a wonderland of fire, color and light.

Enchanted Circle Pottery is located in Taos Canyon on US Hwy 64 between Angel Fire and Taos, the studio and gallery are owned and operated by artists Kevin and JoAnne DeKeuster. The couple create a variety of functional and sculptural ceramic pieces. The functional ware is lead free, dishwasher and microwave safe. The most unique aspect of their artwork is that it is fired solely with wood. Wood firing, an ancient Japanese process, produces on of a kind iridescent colors. As the wood burns in the kiln, the ash lands on the ceramic work. The kiln reaches such intensely high temperatures that the ash is melted into the glaze. The flames surging across the pots also add interesting marks and color. You will enjoy a trip to the studio and gallery and find the couple at work, throwing pottery on the wheel, creating pieces by hand or loading and firing their unique kiln. Gallery open daily 9 AM to 5 PM. http://enchantedcirclepottery.com.
