First balloon stop on this year’s summer walk-about was the Panguitch Valley Balloon Rally. This is always a great rally that the town comes out and supports whole-heartedly. We had 3 great days of flying with many balloons being able to box back to the launch field each day. The winds didn’t cooperate for the…Continue Reading “Panguitch Valley Balloon Rally”
Walk about 2018 Our first night was a stop at the Virgin River Gorge campground before setting a more permanent camp for 3 nights at Lower Calf Creek Falls in Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument.

Rally number 3 just ended Sunday but since I’m a bit behind on my posts here are a couple of photos from rally number 2 in Panguitch, UT.

I’m a little late getting started on our trip blogs but we had a slow and rocky start for the summer trip. You would think by now we would be a bit more organized for these trips, but not this year. Modifications and repairs to the trailer got started late due to the old conundrum…Continue Reading “Seven balloon rallies and a wedding”
As some of you may know my husband and I travel with 2 Great Danes. There are challenges to traveling with dogs but I would rather deal with the challenges and have them with us than to board them somewhere. We used to stay clear of National Parks because we thought they didn’t welcome dogs….Continue Reading “National Park Dogs”
