I feel like this is some sort of rite of passage... are there membership cards for this? :lol:

Buried under a pile of bona fide tumbleweeds in a tiny ravine near the bottom of Starvation Lane in Cottonwood Canyon State Park:

It had been there long enough that a miner's lettuce plant had tangled its roots up in the balloon's "string" (a white ribbon).

Somewhere, a balloon is bereft of its ribbon. I searched, but was unable to reunite them.

Caught something out of the corner of my eye off trail on Little Badger Creek. Lo and behold what should I find... this time I actually remembered to bring a garbage bag with me. Good thing too since it was was more than a little muddy.

Extremely fresh, looked like it could have landed yesterday (was only crinkled because it spent some time in my pocket).

I found one of these a page or two back.

Not a balloon, but kinda related (abandoned flying things).
