I got up at the crack of dawn this morning to go to the morning launch of the Balloons Over Bend.
I’ve been doing this almost every year, but this year the weather was the best it’s ever been.
Cool but not cold, nary a breath of wind on the ground, and the most beautiful clear blues skies.
I timed it perfectly. When I got there they were just starting to inflate the balloons and I was able to watch all of them lift off.
Going up in a balloon is on my bucket list. . . Someday.
