Breaking News...This is for Real

It's no longer a rumor, there really is a Starbucks in Mountain Village, located in Hotel Madeline.  Say what you will about big chains, the mocha cookie crumble fraps are good.

Full Bloom

Even the color of dandelions is exciting after a long winter.

Playing Around

Since the balloons didn't fly Sunday morning, I spent some time around the San Miguel River just seeing what all of the little fun things my camera can do.

Tethered Rides

The balloons didn't get to fly on day 2 of the 30th Telluride Balloon Festival.  Instead, four balloons inflated in Town Park and offered tethered rides.

Main Street GLO

Saturday evening the balloons were able to inflate on Main Street for the night GLO, always a super fun time!

Glowing Reflection

I caught a reflection of the hot air balloon and the sky in this one, as this pond is definitely not really this blue.

My Favorite

The Balloon Festival wouldn't be complete without a few shots of my favorite balloon, the Koshare from Gallup.

Fun With Reflections

The weather was just perfect Saturday morning for about 17 balloons to fly from Town Park to the Valley Floor, some as far as the Shell Station area.  The temperature was 34 degrees when they lifted off, which explains Maralee's winter hat and jacket seen below.

Telluride 30th Annual Balloon Festival

This weekend summer festival season kicked off with the Balloon Festival.  This is my 7th one since living here, and I was just as excited as always.
