Flying the Rio Grande River

July 6, 2011

Here's another shot of the morning ride in the hot air balloons. There were 4 balloons. I took this shot of the two lead balloons from the 3rd balloon that we were in, and there was another balloon behind ours. We are flying down the Rio Grande Gorge and this shot was taken about 7:15 in the morning. As you can see the lighting was a little tough, but I liked the way the river and the bridge are still in early morning shadow as the balloons rode high in the sun that morning. We actually did fly down very close to the water a little bit further down the river, and it was cool to be able to see the rushing water from the air. Check this out in X3 as the details are easier to see in the larger size.

Thanks to everyone for your comments on the gas pumps yesterday, they are very much appreciated!!

Best,
Linda
