Colorado Balloon Classic Is A Great Summer Finale

Our family loves the hot air balloons. While we don’t attend this great Labor Day weekend event every year, we at least try. Sometimes life – and lack of sleep – get in the way, and occasionally the weather forecast isn’t favorable for the dawn launch. But when you catch it right – WOW! It is just amazing to see over 100 hot air balloons launch almost the same time. Add the incredible scenic backdrop they launch to, and it is almost magic. There are 3 days of dawn launches, plus an evening ‘balloon glow’, so our odds are good of catching at least something.
These shots are from last year’s festival, hope we make it this year again!
