I am excited to report that the second Annual Animas Valley Balloon Rally October 20-21. Last year, I was asked to sponsor a pilot. We took a ride over the valley, and it was truly amazing! I really had no idea how it would feel to be floating high in the sky in a balloon! I’ve lived in the valley for 16 years and have never seen it quite like that. It’s a completely new perspective on the natural beauty and real estate I see every day.
Our pilot was extremely experienced and knowledgeable which took away any fears I had. Wendy and I took off early on a Saturday morning. We were in complete amazement of the clear, spectacular fall day! We will always remember the smooth, quiet (except for the occasional release of fuel) ride.
I was pleased this year to find out that the Balloon Rally would become an annual event! I would highly recommend getting up early and watching the balloons inflate and take off. I hope to see you there!
