We decided to sleep in late after attending the Special Shapes Balloon Glow last night.
As usual the balloons took off for the day’s activities at 7:00 AM. From our bed we looked out our window to watch the hundreds of balloons fly over head. For some reason they were flying very low, which gave us a spectacular view.
One balloon, Tiger Paw Express, looked like it was heading right for our Sphinx. It was.
It landed in front of us.
I asked the pilot if that was intended, and he said it looked like a nice wide spot, so he landed. Actually, balloons were landing all around us.
Twenty minutes later, the balloon Primary Reflections, came toward us
It also landed next to the Sphinx.
Bystanders came over to help collapse the balloon
The balloon crew dismantled the basket
and folded up the balloon in a neat package
