Yes, those zebras were cool (and very important). I also got off on the horses that the police were on:

We arrived in Alamosa this afternoon and were greeted by 50+ wind gusts and cold, cold temps. Summer is over. Saw a few flakes of snow at 37˚ after we visited a friend in Monte Vista who has an antique store at the east side of town. Lots and lots of cools stuff. Look for the two houses on the north side of US 160 for lots of goodies.

Just flushed the black tank and hope to warm up soon, take a shower and put away the water hose and fill the water tank, all in the dark. After going to the Fiesta in the dark I can now see in the dark with the aid of a couple of flashlights.

Still talking about how great the Fiesta was. Thanks again to all those who put this together. Organizing an event like the rally is a big job and the smoother it runs, the better job was done. It was smooth.

Hi Richard,
We're in Santa Fe right now with our Airstream and were hoping to get to see one day at the balloon fiesta. We want to drive down early for the morning launching without our Airstream. Is there a way we could get in with the Airstream group for the liftoff either Friday, Saturday, or Sunday? Where are you located in the park?

Thanks,

Jim & Cheryl

Our rally ended on Tuesday morning, sorry but we are all gone. We are currently in Gallup after spending 2 days in Cortez, CO. Jan and I would have enjoyed seeing you both again.

Thanks for the quick reply Richard. Sorry we missed the group, but couldn't get here soon enough for the rally. I think we'll still try to see one of the final day liftoffs Fri, Sat, or Sun, but would have been even more fun with the Airstreamers.

Hope to see you maybe this winter.

Thanks,

Jim

Many Thanks to the Four Corner Unit for having this Rally. We came 9,000 miles around the USA to get here, it was well worth it. We will never forget the explosion of the Balloons lifting off <6:30 am?> I did post some pictures on my Album for you to see, Enjoy.

Thanks from Cheryl and I to Ken and all who worked so hard to make this a great time for everyone. It sounds like this gets bigger every year and plans are for 150-200 next year. It will be up to us who have "been there, done that" to help spread the word to our fellow forum members, what a great time this is at a truly world class event, to help Ken and his crew hit whatever numbers they set as their goal. Thanks again...we'll see you again next year!

Bob & Cheryl

From the organizaing committee to all who attended - we sincerely thank you for attending this great event - its pretty hard to do a rally without those who attend, so without you all, the Balloon Fiesta Rally would not happen. Yes we want to continue to grow this rally because it gives us the ablilty to get the great spots that we have. We are the largest group for the Fiesta and they like us a lot because we are so organized.

Ken J.
