We drove south, stopping at Garden of the Gods Park, before crossing over the New Mexico border. We spent the next several days based in Indian resort and casino while we explored the rocky desert terrain.
For the next several hours, we watched as one colorful balloon after another inflated and took off into the sky. There were all shapes and sizes: cartoon characters, boats, whales, chariots, butterflies ... and even Cinderella. Both the land and the sky were flooded with color. It was one of those experiences where photographs just couldn't do justice but we all kept clicking away with every sight being more captivating than the last.
