*Note- I unfortunately have never gotten to ride in one of these… Every year there is a Balloon festival in the neighborhood… it’s great to see… watching these guys take off and land from people’s front yards or wherever they find a spot is amazing!

  1. That’s beautiful – I’ve never seen a hot air balloon IRL, let alone gone up in one. Did you get a trip up too?

  2. Wow, I love air balloons and this one was nice done.

    I’ve seen many of them since they use to fly over Stockholm a lot, but I’ve never been up in one.

    I’m afraid of height so I don’t know if I would dare too. Feeling tempted though!

  5. The ‘fly’ a lot of ballons in the Valley of the Sun too. I don’t think I would be brave enough to take off in one though.
    Have a blessed and safe Memorial Day weekend.

  8. I’ve flown in one, in Africa. It’s not as silent as you expect. Every time they give it gas, it’s really loud. We caused a herd of wildebeeste to stampede from the sound. But other than that, it’s smooth and peaceful, and gives you a bird’s eye view of the ground.

  9. That’s something that I’ve thought about but never done. I’m not sure if I’d be brave enough to get in, given the chance.

    Wonderful choice of photos.

    Mine is up now too.

    Have a great weekend!!

  15. Great photo…but I think I would rather be on the ground watching. I think my husband would love it though. I don’t do well with heights.

  21. That picture is perfect! You must give hot air ballooning a try some time. I went up in one in Scottsdale, AZ. It was a very smooth ride.

    Take care,
