This is the last of the four balloons that were flying in line down the Rio Grande Gorge. Being able to take a hot air balloon ride was one of the things on my "Bucket List" that I'm now able to scratch off the list. But I can tell you that the ride was so much fun, that I'll do it again if I ever get the chance. It's so quiet and peaceful being above the earth early in the morning. It's a very cool experience. I'd highly recommend it to all Smugmuggers.

Thank you all for your comments on yesterday's balloon shot, they are very much appreciated!
