Gas Balloon

Gas Balloon

This is one of the gas balloons in the America’s Challenge right after it lifted off. To be honest I am not sure which balloon it is. Once they started taking off they went pretty quick. In this photo I am facing NNW.

The balloons took off at sunset which gave the mountains and sky this gorgeous pinky purple color.

Here is a link to the balloon tracking.   Balloon number one is the only one still flying.

    Beautiful photo … I hope the balloonist came prepared for the weather and a long trip. based on the tracking, balloon A-1 has made it to Canada … I can hear the kids now “Dad are we their yet”.

Thanks for leaving me a comment!!
