Ha, Ha, HA!!! Found four more Mick.
Three together, two with air or gas and the blue one broken.
All have ribbons too. Found on Isolillock.


Found a party balloon with air or gas in it and ribbon just off the old mining road between the two mines on Silver.

Fragment, tied to fishing line or invisible thread. On the Burke Connector, today.

I also saw what looked like an inflatable water toy, a ring of some sort (= big balloon?) by the river on the way out. It was too big to carry out, assuming it was garbage.

It's Spring time and the balloons are starting to pop.
Found these well helping Greyowl retrace TesKelly's route along the Lower Sumas Ridge Trail.

Good score. I found a nice popped gold one a few weeks ago near St Benedict as well.

Apparently party balloons like to go to the Coquitlam trails when they die: they were almost as plentiful as empty beer cans on (and off) the trail!
Found a bunch in various places around Cypress Lake and Mountain.



Total capture: 4 partials with ribbons, 2 partials with string, 1 mylar, 1 lone ribbon, and 1 tinsel streamer.
