2012 Pirates of the Canyon Balloon Festival

I have been very lazy about doing any blog posts. Why?  I have not idea why.  Again, laziness.  So I will just share some pictures from the last couple of months.

First the Pirates of the Canyon Balloon Festival. We got back from the mountains in time to attend the festival and decided to go on Sunday morning to Palo Duro Canyon for the lift off.  What a gorgeous morning! 

Obviously it was still dark when we got there, about 6:45. But the people were there!10-28-12 Pirates of the Canyon 001ANB is always at a balloon even.

Riding in a hot air balloon is one of the more relaxing, rewarding and memorable adventures I have experienced. Thanks for sharing your experiences. I enjoyed the blog.
