Bandelier and more Balloons

Wed. after the balloon launch we took a drive to see the Aspens in their fall color and we visited Bandelier Nat'l Monument. It has old Indian ruins, here they used the caves on the sides of the cliffs for homes. We also stopped at Jemez State Monument which is also Indian ruins. This morning was the Speciality balloon flight, there were about 60 of them.
After the the Speciality balloons got under way, there was the grab the prize competition where there are poles at different places and the pilots try and grab envelope on the pole. There were also targets to drop sandbags to see who got the closest. There were targets in our field in the RV park too. We heard from our neighbors who stayed at their RV that balloons also landed in this field and they went out to help several. I guess one chase vehicle got stuck in the mud too.
So we missed all that excitment by being over in the Fiesta field.
My camera decided it had had enough, so we bought me a new one at WalMart after we hit I Hop for breakfast. It was lucky the camera lasted to nearly the end of this mornings fun.

The fun thing about this mornings balloon launch was the balloons could fly to a certain level and then come back to the field, it's called the box effect. One balloon came back 4 times! It was strange to watch balloons coming and going. Next time the Balloon Glow.
