Telluride Balloon Festival

The Balloon Festival also occurred over the weekend in conjunction with the Jazz Festival. The wind did not cooperate for launching again this year, but there is no room for error in our box canyon! We did enjoy seeing the balloons inflate early Sunday morning.

The balloons are so colorful. Saw a "glow in" in Dolores once and it was too windy to fly. Nice captures.
