Balloons were popping up all over












As I walked through my kitchen this morning I saw a hot air balloon being filled with air. Behind my house is the parking lot for the Mountain View Park next to the Elementary School. This weekend is the Ruby Mountain Balloon Festival. On the Friday before everything starts they have a bunch of hot air balloons launch from the schools in town. I took over 20 pictures this morning---no I won't show them all but I watched as they filled the "Obsession" balloon and lifted off over the house tops. It landed about 2 miles away. For about 2 hours there were at least 6 to 8 balloons up in the air over the town. They even floated over the house.

Just a tip for you all make sure your camera batteries are fully charged as I would have taken more but when the batteries run down there isn't much you can do. Then I am still learning how to put photos on the page.
That's all for today! ! ! !
