Panguitch Balloon Rally

Smoke on the horizon

Martok’s first balloon rally is one of our favorite rallies each year, the Panguitch Valley Balloon Rally.  Panguitch is a small town in southern Utah not far from Bryce Canyon.  During this year’s rally, smoke from fires in Brian Head had been choking the town days before but the air seemed to clear out for the weekend although smoke was still visible in the distance.

A friendly competition takes place and while I had a pretty good throw between the legs of the X, somehow my baggie didn’t get counted and someone who didn’t even throw got awarded one of the top spots.  I think it was confusion between #6 or #9 on the baggie.

Martok seemed less impressed by the balloons and more interested in chasing grasshoppers on the launch field.
