Flying High

Hot Air Balloon Rally
Riverton, WY
July 20, 2013
This was the 33rd year for the Riverton Rendezvous Balloon Rally, and out of those 33 years the balloons have been grounded only 2 years (last year was one of the two). 

This year, the sky was a brilliant blue and cloudless. . .nearly perfect for hot-air balloons.

You may remember that I was disappointed that Humpty Dumpty did not fly last year, so I was delighted to see that he was back this year and that his feet actually left the ground.


Humpty Dumpty FLEW


and SOARED


and had LOTS of company. . .


even those that came from far, far, away!

  2. What fun! We ran into a balloon festival in England once and it was awesome. Occasionally we can see a few here, but there's nothing quite like watching them inflate the balloons and send them off. Loved your photos! Oh, and a belated happy birthday!!

  7. What fun! A hot air balloon ride at dawn is on my bucket list. Humpty Dumpty would have my vote if he was local.
