Overview
More
Rise with the sun and float gently through beautiful red sandstone canyons and above towering rock spires. See the scenic red rocks from the basket of a hot air balloon. Red Rock Park, just east of Gallup with it's beautiful sandstone canyons and monumental spires have been described as a ballooning paradise and one of the most spectacular places in the world to fly. An adventure you won't soon forget.
