A Beautiful View From Above…

Jeannie and I were honored and privileged to ride in one of the hot-air balloons this year at the 30th annual Great Pershing Balloon Derby. Our humble thanks go out to the balloonists at A Bright Idea: Ken, our humorous and knowledgeable pilot; Bonnie, his girlfriend and chase crew member; Dawn, and our two local gentlemen who provided the lay of the land.

Riding in a balloon gives one a sense of the awesome power and majesty of our living God; the solemn quiet punctuated only by the occasional thrust of the propane burner was a nice reminder in this hustle and bustle life we live on the ground.

Here’s a few of the pics we took from the digital camera from 2,000 feet and lower:
