RIDER IN THE SKY

 

This was the scene from my back yard on Labor Day morning.  Every year Colorado Springs hosts a hot air balloon festival.  In the past the 'air parade route' went right over our house.  Recently though we've only been able to catch a few who probably drifted off course.  The first time they flew over the house after we moved here they scared the be-what-zits out of me!  I heard this strange roar right over the house and ran out in my pjs, and was greeted by the balloonists just barely skimming over the rooftop.

They are loud, when they go over the house. It use to drive my dog crazy, until we moved. But I do like to watch them, just have no desire to go up in one.
