I Crush your little Balloon

Last weekend, while Trent finally got some rest, I was up an hour before dawn for the annual Reno Balloon Race/festival/event/thing. Kari and I walked from her house to the upper part of Rancho San Rafael park, which puts you above the crowds, but central to the mass launch. In the dark before sunrise, the Dawn Patrol balloons ascend for the Glow Show. After sunrise the other 100+ head up before the air gets too warm. It was very easily the neatest thing I've done in Reno so far. [Even better, it's the nation's largest FREE balloon event]. There are a bunch of other photos up on Flickr. The colors are amazing! Anyone who's anyone was there - the Energizer bunny, all the big casinos... even Jesus had a balloon.
