Colorado Balloon Classic - Ascent & Balloon Glo

Sunday, September 1, 2013

For the past several years we have gone down to Colorado Springs to see the Balloon Classic Balloon Glo.  This year we decided to get up before the sunrise to see the ascent of the balloons since we have never been for a launch.  The weather had other plans.  Much to our disappointment, we got down the Springs and the wind was too strong for the balloons to be able to inflate and fly.

Since our plans were foiled, we grabbed breakfast at Kings Chef Diner and then did a quick drive through Garden of the Gods before heading home.


Although we didn't get any pictures of the balloons this year, here are a few from previous trips to the Balloon Glo (it is always a great time and so beautiful to see the balloons all lit up in bright colors against the dark setting of the night sky).
