Here in the Southwest part of the US, a lot of people love hot air ballooning. Occasionally, some get really close to the ground and our house.
This was taken a couple of years ago from our house. Most of the time they’re far away in the sunset
I don’t do water and I don’t do heights, no way, no how.
What if you had a big ballon in the shape of a gaint Scottie?
Arooooooooooo Let the fun begin.
I’d AROOO to it but I wouldn’t go up in it.
Think I’m with you, I rather dig a tunnel :o) But they look not bad and your sunset is great. Our sunsets are not as beautiful as yours. Its more: outen the lights! and that’s all :o)
It’s probably a lot more crowded there.
I’m with you on these. I don’t do heights either, but I do go boating. A. Lot.
Have a fabulous day. 🙂
I bet you also figured out that you can’t swim in air if something goes wrong.
I can’t help but think you and Roxy the traveling dog are geographically near to each other.. I see similar pictures of yellow flowers and cactus and now hot air balloons! That first one reminded me of the wicked witch in Wicked 😉 It looks like you get pretty sunsets against a wide horizon there 😉 Should be open to thing 😉
That may be the case. I don’t know where Roxy is located or even know Roxy. I am close to Ranch-run-amuck and we even went on a hike together. http://ranchrunamuck.wordpress.com/2014/01/27/another-walk-with-new-friends/
They have 13 (scratch that, 12-unfortunately they lost one) rescue dogs.
Oh well, USA is a big place, I read ranchrunamuck too 😉 Their cool.
We didn’t know it, but we’re very close. The problem is that there is a mountain between us so that makes it a 10 minute drive around it. From the comments we thought the “ranch” was a half hour drive north of us and they thought we were the same half hour drive north of them.
I am so with you, I hate anything like that. I like my feet firmly on the ground xxxoxxx
Mollie and Alfie
We could send the AlienLifeForm up, up, and away!
I’ve done it! It was so gentle and peaceful. But you won’t catch me skydiving!
If something happens to the balloon, you would be skydiving.
i was brought up to believe in terra firma. I live by it to this day.
Me too. I hope one doesn’t land on me.
SHE doesn’t do heights…and thinks landing amongst cactus is just asking for trouble.
That second picture almost looks like musical notes…BOL!
XXXOOO Bella & Roxy
I hope it’s not Morse code SOS.
We love to watch hot air balloons. We use to see a lot of them, but the last few years not many. One use to have the face of Abraham Lincoln on it. Well one year in the evening this sound kept getting louder and louder, Lee thought something was wrong with the AC. She stepped out on the porch to be greeted by a heavy rope dangling from the tree. The hot air balloon had gotten caught in our 67 year old giant oak tree.

That’s why I don’t go up in them! Thank you for proving my point.
You ain’t kidding sista. No way.
I’m with you, bro-no way.
It’s liberating in a sense because the air is one of the few places where humans and dogs are on equal footing; both are completely helpless when it comes to flying. Pretty pictures, I used to see a lot of those in Colorado.
Any friend of Becca’s is a friend of mine. It doesn’t matter that I just lost every other dog who follows this blog because of the picture of a squirrel 🙂
I wondered where all the dogs were coming from… I held the picture over from my days as Squirrelly Writer; now I am just (me)writes again.
That balloon looks awfully close to those cacti…just sayin’
Wally & Sammy
That would be too close for me. You mess with the cactus once and you don’t forget.
If you can see the faces, that’s too close for comfort, right? They do look pretty from far away.
You’d think they’d be worried about landing on a saguaro cactus or much worse-jumping cholla, a real ouch.
You and me both, Kyla! I wouldn’t get in one of things!
We’d hike a mile to rescue a dog but neither of us would go 100 miles in one of those.
Must be incredible to see
It’s better to see from the ground than in the air.
Happy Saint Patrick’s Day to you three dogs and that is no blarney.
Sweet William The Scot
Thank you, Wm. You don’t give us any blarney!
