Panguitch the second balloon rally of our summer road trip

The sky on the first evening in Panguitch didn’t look very friendly for ballooning but the weekend turned out just fine with all three days flyable and the Main Street glow starting on schedule.

On Sunday, Ernie decided to strike out for the river drainage and we had to hit the highway to follow. He and two other balloons ended up in a field next to a farm-house north of town, the kids greatly enjoyed the tether rides we gave them in exchange for the courtesy of using the family farm for landing.
