Utah Bluff Balloon Festival.

What the heck is happening in this photo? Check out the story in Donna’s recap of the Utah Bluff Balloon Festival.

From Donna:

How do you feel about learning something new? Alan and I started Tai Chi classes this week. And this ancient martial arts practice is challenging our brains as much as it is challenging our muscles. But once we’ve mastered and memorized the moves, we’ll have another exercise practice to bring on the road that requires no equipment. Do you exercise on a trip? Share your tips with us.

From Nicole:

Utah is an amazing travel destination and one that can be visited throughout the year. Of course, its quite chilly in the wintertime, but don’t let that stop you. The Bluff Balloon Festival, held in October, is a great event (as evidenced by the photo above). And, 0f course, the Sundance Film Festival is the place to be if you’re a fancy pants celebrity. However, if you prefer to visit local festivals with a little less flash, check out this calendar of local Utah events to really connect with the locals on your next travel adventure.
