These photos were sent to me by forums member MJBear. They show how close to the action we are at the Balloon Fiesta. The trailer #7513 is my 75 Trade Wind.

still on the road

We are still traveling as well. Went that very route you just mentioned - spent 3 days at Cottonwood Campground and toured Canyon de Chelly. Had Navajo Tacos there. Then went to the Toadlena trading post - great place and lots of weaving history - they offered lunch to us while there, yep, Navajo Tacos again. Then we had them one more time for lunch..... ! They are good!! We traveled 160 through Tuba City and Cameron and are now at the Grand Canyon. Planning a few hikes and the mule ride to the bottom.... Then we will be heading for Tucson. We may never go back home. There was several inches of snow on the ground there and it's just Oct. Not looking forward to winter!
Here's the pink pig and company. The local police were having portraits taken late Tues. morning when we were having a breakfast burrito before departing the fiesta grounds.

Thanks to All

Many thanks to Ken and Ellyn and the rest of the FCU for hosting such a great rally. This was our first and we appreciated all the friendly and helpful advice. We had a great time and hope to return next year.

Okay...I'm a little late to the party in posting pics...but I took so many and had to just pick out my favorites...I like the way Birdy's polished segments mimic the ribs on the balloons.

Thanks to all for making the rally what it was...can't wait until next time to have Birdy all polished up so I can get some reflection shots!

One of the coolest things we experienced while in ALB was when we went down to Old Town to sightsee...we happened to be there the same time as the WWII Navajo Code Talkers were there. They were having a book signing and we were able to get a book and have them autograph it...also to thank them for their service. Very cool!

Very nicely done, everybody. Even though we were able to watch the Ballon Fiesta at home it was nothing like being with our unit at the rally itself. Maybe next year. Shari, nicely done with the Code Talkers. Sometimes we do not think about the sacrafices the Native Americands have made for our country.
