The morning was perfect for the first mass ascension of more than 40 hot air balloons from the Chatfield State Park launch site! Although we normally watch this event from our home, this morning we drove into the Park and watched from a hilltop as the balloons were being inflated, with a few at a time rising up and sailing away!! I have shared a few select shots, although I took a zillion, of course!! Apparently the returning pink rabbit is the LARGEST hot air balloon around...and as we watched it land, it IS HUGE!!!! I hope you enjoy the color of the festivities!!
