Saturday was a beautiful morning and I decided to shoot from the Lake Powell National Golf Course. There were plenty of folks there with the same idea this cool November morning. While watching the flights I chatted with folks from Tuba City Hospital, Flagstaff, Kanab and Phoenix.
Several of the pilots maneuvered their balloons over the ponds at the golf course which was quite the site as they then began to rise over the first set of buttes.
Hot Air Balloon Regatta Friday
Friday was overcast yet not very chilly for the last day of October. After the flights in the morning, the pilots and crews were treated to lunch on several houseboats provided by Antelope Pointe Marina.

Saturday Night Balloon Glow
The synchronized lighting of the hot air balloons at night on Lake Powell Blvd is surreal. The Page Lake Powell Chamber of Commerce had a “vendor fair” with everything from food to t-shirts available in the Mesa Theater parking Lot.
