  1. Monna; what doesn't make me happy about the happy-face balloon? I love the contrast between old and classic, and new and kind of kitch. Also the colors are fantastic.
    Lucy; your photo makes me wish I had been in this place to see that beautiful light in person. This is a river I'd like to strap on my Chako's and hike.

  2. I like that the balloon seems to be smiling on the scene below and the river running through it.
