Sunday, October 3 – We started our day with a beautiful sunrise. This is looking out our side window. What a view.
Then there was another mass balloon launch. Paul walked down to the launch field, and Marsha decided to watch from the RV park. We both enjoyed it immensely. Many of the balloons landed around the RV park. Amazingly, no RV were hit.
Our motor home.
So low over the RV park.
High in the sky.
So many different colors and shapes….what an experience!
This evening we worked our shift at the Chase Crew Tower and then went with friends Betty & Jay to the Balloon Glow. That's where they blow the balloons up after-dark and light them with the propane gas burners. They do not launch in the dark!
It started clouding up, and we even had some lightning in the nearby mountains. We decided to skip the fireworks following the Glow and head for home. We arrived back to the motor home just as it started to rain. This didn't stop the fireworks. Even though it was lightning and raining a little, they still held the fireworks.
To see more of these awesome balloons, click here for group balloons and click here for some individual shots of balloons. As soon as we buy a program, we will have the names for most of the balloons.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see y’all back again soon. Have a great day!
