Hot Air Balloon In The Valley
At 8 a.m. I noticed a blue hot air balloon floating west of town. Are you aware that Buena Vista has an annual event in early June where numerous hot air balloons launch for the weekend? It is called " Balloona Vista" - the first weekend in June. Mark your calendars and be there!
On the personal front, I continue to work diligently with my book writing. I am currently working on expounding on the intense two month planning stage of my trip, and reflect on how even reaching San Diego (by car, with my bicycle in the trunk) was quite an accomplishment in itself. :)
Lastly, the plan is to hike Tabeguache Peak with friends on Saturday. Our route will deviate from the standard route of reaching Mt. Shavano from the west and following the ridge to Tabeguache. Stay tuned for details!
