Night glow in Galena
I returned to The Galena Territory this evening for the Great Galena Balloon Race's night glow event. This time, Madame X accompanied me.
Despite my early wake-up call, and a nap of but 6 or 7 minutes, I held up OK.
I was able to introduce Madame X to "my" crew from the morning balloon flight. Bert, Jane, Elizabeth, Sean and Heidi had Goldie set up for night glow, the twilight event where the pilots, with their balloons tethered, simultaneously fire their propane burners to produce a spectacular sight.
It was a great evening.
