Day 873: Balloons and PPG

Today after homeschool we said goodbye to Shoshana and Barak and their kids.  Thanks for hosting us this past week!  We drove northwest to Pleasant Valley Airport to get in an afternoon PPG flight.  As I was setting up, a pair of balloons did a low flyby over the airport:

After landing and stowing the PPG, we drove northwest, dumping tanks and getting gas before arriving in Boulder City, Nevada to overnight at the Hoover Dam Lodge and Casino.
