Smoke covering the sky from the fire going on at Brian Head Ski Resort
We headed out mid-afternoon on Friday and stopped in Las Vegas for some Cafe Rio on our way. So good and I was excited to use my $5 off any meal because I have the app. Woot! Plus Friday is my favorite meal deal and they only do it that day so it was a double win.
We made it to the campsite pretty late (almost 2am) and after Kylee's dog had a confrontation with a rattlesnake, we all decided car camping would be best and we'd set up the pop up the next day for them.
We got up about 5:45am and headed into Panguitch from our camping spot, to the field by the school where the balloons would be setting up. They had donuts which was so nice and I got a maple bar. What did I not get? A picture. So did I really eat a maple bar?
One of my top favorite balloons of course!
Such a good morning for a flight despite the smokey skies
Tony & I helped crew for Judy and on Saturday our job was to hold open the mouth of the balloon so it could fill with air from a giant fan
Just like this!
Judy offered to let ME get in the basket since her sponsors didn't show up and she didnt have to ask me twice. I have gotten to go up in hot air balloons (mainly hers) quite a bit now and it's always a magical experience however if I have a friend there or there's another crew member who has not gotten to go up, I'm all about letting them have a turn instead. It's all good! I just enjoy being around the balloons.
Stay tuned for what adventures we had in the afternoon....
