Balloons, the sky and Slick Rock Park.....

 After I dropped my grandson at school, I saw this balloon in the sky, and 
just had to stop and take a few pictures before I headed back to work.
 The skies above St. George are beautiful this morning.  We have a storm
 coming in from the Pacific, and we're supposed to get rain this afternoon.
 This is a picture from above Slick Rock Park.  
I remember when we built this park, it looked so barren.  It has really filled in.
 See, it's still quite green here.  I am seeing more and more trees turning though.

 The balloon above the park.  The building in the background is a high school.  
I'm pretty sure that balloon is heading for the flat fields behind the school.  
It has been steadily lowering closer to the ground.

Like Debbie says, ballooning is an experience like no other! If you ever get the chance, jump on it!! Lovely days there in the desert.
