The 4th in Albuquerque

The 4th of July was pretty uneventful for me. This year I sat on my roof and watched whatever fireworks were going off. The best display was at the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta grounds, which I got on video.

Because of the recent fires in the Bosqe, there has been a big crack down on illegal fireworks. Didn’t stop people in my neighborhood though as I saw several fireworks going off that exceeded the requirements. They were fun to watch, I was just worried that someone was going to catch something on fire. Luckily there were no fires around my house.

What does Bosque mean, I found the following:

Early Spanish explorers bestowed the name Bosque (pronounced boss-kee) meaning “wooded.”

So there you have it, it means a woods.
