This just in: Albuquerque is not just a land for blue crystal meth. It's also a place where blue skies are filled with hot air balloons floating like pollen on the wind.

The video above was shot during the a Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta earlier this month and posted to YouTube Monday. It charts course of the massive hot air balloon festival from the early morning when the massive balloons look like glowing paper lanterns, through the middle of the day when they swarm on the breeze and finally to an evening fireworks show.

The video also must be welcome good press for a city most famous recently as the setting for the fictional drug wars in TV's "Breaking Bad."

So sit back and enjoy the balloon fiesta.
