This past weekend was the Telluride Balloon Festival. Again, the wind was not cooperating. The wind has to be perfectly blowing west in order for the balloons to fly from Town Park to the Valley Floor. There is no room for error in a box canyon! We still enjoyed watching the balloons inflate.
This balloon from Gallup, New Mexico is my favorite.
The balloon on the right had a Colorado flag on it. I guess he didn't like that.
Saturday night it was too windy for the balloons to inflate for the planned night glow, but we did get to see a fire show again. This one looks like Ajax Peak is on fire.
