Smaller than a beach ball, maybe about the size of a large child's head. I found it in the Salmon Creek canyon, cleaned it up, put it in my pack, and posed it on that snag. Tossed it in my car. Next day at the timberline parking lot, it blew out of my car, and wind/gravity took it eastbound down the road. It was dark, and I wasn't going to chase it down. Looked for it later, but no luck. I chuckle at the thought that it likely rolled right back into the Salmon Creek canyon. Rinse and repeat.

This is probably the freshest one I've found, all shiny and clean, with the curly ribbon intact.

Just as I was starting to wonder if trail tape might have been helpful, I spotted this. :lol:

I hit the trifecta yesterday below Table Mountain. Three of them scattered along my path.

I can't believe there are 6 pages of dead balloons :)

At least it is in Idle Chatter where it belongs, not a sticky in General, unlike some other threads...

It has some redeeming value, letting people know not to let balloons free because they come back to ground as trash

I have been encouraging it :)

My first contribution. Blue-bloon on a stick, 2015, in a melt stream below Conrad Glacier in the Goat Rocks.
