Watch the Balloon Fiesta mass ascension from our deck! Our home is in a custom home community in Rio Rancho, NM, 45 minutes from Santa Fe and 30 minutes from Albuquerque. The community has 1/2 acre lots so there's lots of natural space. It's quiet here, perfect for morning or afternoon walks where you may see lots of wildlife, and if you're really lucky, an owl or a coyote! Our panoramic view of the Sandia Mountains from our HUGE deck is constantly changing, perfect for picture opportunities!
