Thursday, Oct. 11, 2018 – Lovely Mass Ascension

I was up at 6:00am.  I rode the shuttle (school bus) from the RV park to the balloon field.  It is about 1/2 mile.    It was a lovely morning with a great mass ascension.  Row after row of balloons lifting off.

The wind had picked up in the afternoon.  I went back to the field at 6:00pm for the Balloon Glow.  Canon camera company is the major sponsor for the event.  They were doing free camera & lens inspections on Canon cameras.  I took advantage of that ($110 value) and had mine checked while waiting on the wind to die down.  The wind never did and the Balloon Glow was cancelled.
