Description

I own no land, instead I have wheelestate. I’ve been a full time RVer since 1997. Working summers as a Park Ranger takes me to many beautiful places and playing during the winter takes me to many more. This blog is simply the story of my life's adventures.

Glow In - Skywatch Friday

Glow In - Dolores, CO 2005

During 2005 I worked at Mesa Verde National Park in southwest Colorado. A little north of the park lays the small community of Dolores that hosted a hot-air balloon festival, which I missed during the day due to working. But at night, the balloons glowed. Unfortunately, bad weather with high wind was moving in so this is the only balloon that filled, and not for long.

Please check out more skies, from around the world, at Skywatch Friday.

That is totally stunning. I always love to see balloons sailing along in the bright sky, but now I think I like them like this better!

Still a nice shot! Our town hosts the world's largest balloon festival each year. This year, at least 3 weekend events were canceled due to weather. (3 of the 4 weekend days the morning evenings canceled. I was out-of-town, so I'm not sure about the glows.) It seems the weather just doesn't like to cooperate at times like this!

Jack and I lived in Arizona for five years and Jack's mom used to live in Bowie, Arizona in Cochise County which is bigger than the state of Rhode Island. Lots of land to explore in your RV.
Nice photo to remind us of The Grand Canyon state.

Great shot. This is my first time on your blog (I think) but I have been reading some back post and really enjoy it. I am adding you to my bloglines feeds so I can come back as you update.
Happy Sky Watch Friday and Happy Halloween to you.
