3 balloons found between Warren Lake and the river. (Not on trail, of course.)

Last one was a pup - still had a little bit of helium in it! I put it out of its misery. :twisted:

Will hike off trail for fun.

Sunday I wandered the Bogor Botanical Gardens and came across this guy who was celebrating his 150th birthday! The garden was founded in 1817, so it also happens to be celebrating 200 years of existence.

150 years from day of planting...

The 210 acre park is very popular, probably because of the lack of green spaces in Jakarta
Some people are really fit at eighty; thankfully I still have many years to get into shape…

I carelessly neglected to bring an axe leash yesterday, so I was excited when I spotted this uv-ravaged balloon ribbon. :)

Sadly, no balloon in sight. :cry:

Found on Quartz Creek Butte, on July 25th

I usually don't take a photo of many balloons I find, I just pick them up and dispose of them when I get home. This one was really colorful, though, so it gets an honorable mention.

A couple finds today.
The second one isn't technically a balloon, but it's a thin rubber re-inflatable ball, so it's nearly a balloon.
