Straddling the picturesque Rio Grande River, Albuquerque is a thoroughly modern yet historically charming city, bustling with technology industries like Sandia National Laboratories (which works on developing nuclear weapons systems and technology), Sandia Science and Technology Park, Eclipse Aerospace and Kirtland Air Force Base. The city hosts the famous Albuquerque International Balloon Festival, featuring hot air balloon enthusiasts from all over the world, and the Petroglyph National Monument, a national park dedicated to preserving the artifacts and petroglyph drawings of the early Pueblo people that inhabited the area prior to European settlement. The site features over 24,000 images carved into the rocky landscape.
