Fantastic experience, still have visions of BALLOONS and 500 pics to sort and edit. 100 times better then I expected. Got my friend off at the Airport, he was delighted and returning home to have open heart surgery. No one stopped me going through the AP with the trailer in tow.

I'm really glad you all had a great time - wow open heart surgery - I hope he's ok - really nice fellow - hope to see him again.

Will be back again next year - the balloon folks really like us, so at some point maybe we can fill the entire site wouldn't that be something...

Weather worked out great for us - it really poured yesterday

We are still headed north. We are camped at the Air Force Academy camp grounds in Colorado Springs this morning. It's 34 degrees with a little snow. We should be at the Region Rally in Fort Collins early this afternoon. Charlie and Dorothy from Las Vegas are our travel partners for the trip and it has been a lot of fun.

Not looking good...

It's snowing/drizzling right now in Golden...nothing is sticking...just making it downright gloomy.

Ft. Collins is about the same...lows in the low 20's expected the next couple of days...Brrr! We're bringing our "pink stuff" for the trip home after the rally ~ but we're hardy...see you tomorrow Richard! Travel safe ~

Ugh! Pretty much the same forecast for Angel Fire: 50% chance of the white stuff tonight, according to the Weather Channel. Makes me want to hitch up and head south!

It's a cool and crisp 42 degrees here and there isn't a cloud in the sky. A fall morning doesn't get any better than this. I can see the balloons in the distance from my patio. They are drifting to the north so there may be some landing in my neighborhood. I'll have to get the camera ready!

Pictures, Pictures, Where are the Pictures?

I loved the pictures posted so far, but there hasn't been any of the pot luck or the TTQ. I would enjoy seeing more of any of the happenings.

Hey Richard,
Nice pictures, looks like you got a new camera.

We ended up going back to the fiesta Thur. night for the Special Shape Glow. it was really great! Pics of the pot luck as requested and also the "Glow" on Thur night.

Jan and I are still in Fort Collins at the Region Rally. It's 22 degrees right now and snowing. We will be headed out on Sunday or Monday. Hopefully the weather will break by then.
