It was another great Snowdown event and on the last day there was a amazing balloon show. “Be not afraid of greatness!” Gazeth thine eyes skyward as the greatest of
hot air balloons riseth into the heavens. Mass upgoingeth of hot air
balloons floateth gently down the Animas Valley. Viewing can be done
from Lone Pine Dr and North Animas Valley neighborhoods.
