The wood carving is spectacular! It all starts as a big piece of redwood and they turn them into works of art. It is well worth the walk to the other end of the field. For a few bucks you get a chance to win a nice carving and it is for a great cause as well.

It is amazing how the cactus looks like the 4CU logo.

Amazing what they can do with 6,000 lb. of redwood.

Safe travels this next week.

FOUR CORNERS ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The wood carving championship goes to Jason Emmons of Washington with his entry, "Spirit of the Southwest". This carving had 11 different southwest scenes and included an eagle, bear, coyote, pueblo, etc. But the real winner was the man who purchased the piece in the auction for ONLY $3,250.

Tonight will be our last at the fiesta and it has been a lot of fun.

This morning the balloons flew right over our trailers as they attempted to hit targets on the ground in a game of Texas Hold'em.

Several of us were eye witnesses to a horrifying accident when a balloon hit a tent on the edge of the field and the passenger was thrown to the ground. The pilot then did an emergency decent by letting the air out of the balloon and hit the ground very hard. Both people were taken to the local hospital and are expected to recover.

Yes, we've been watching the coverage on the local news. Pretty ugly! At least nobody was killed this year (yet).

Nice shots Richard. We enjoyed them from the 20" LCD in our sunroom.

Weather still a little unsettled in SW colo. Yesterday in Denver was an excellent day so your trip up to Region should be O.K. Watch for snow in the high country. There is snow on La Plata's near Durango.

Pictures?

How is everyone doing on their trip home from the fiesta?

Jan and I went North and are camped in Angel Fire, NM at forums member Eubank's RV park. We have a mini rally of sorts with 3 Airstreams in a row. I'll post a few pictures later.

It has warmed up this morning to 32 and wet. It was 20 last night!

Dang. I sort of figured that it might be bad down there, too.

Oh, well, this storm is presumbly one that will pass over fairly quickly, so everything should be good to go by tomorrow or the next day. (But not before it leaves some of that dreaded white stuff up here.)
