about 1/2 way through the flight we were over the snake river and scheduled but unexpected for us we landed in the river. getting our feet wet but it was SOOO much fun.
you can almost see me in this reflection above. as fast as we landed we took off again
we continued on for a bit into washington until a field was spotted. well we tought it was a field it was more like a hillside. the ground crew had to come running from a parking lot to catch us and walk the basket and balloon down the hill to a safe spot to drop the balloon so that it would not be damaged.
this was the last shot I got until we were on stable ground
I was surprised the landing was so smooth only one little bounce and not really much of one. and then the guys held onto the bottom of the basket and guided us down the hill.
this is me :
we had to help load the balloon after it was deflated into the basket for safe travel back to our starting point.
hope you enjoyed my little journey in a hot air balloon. if you ever get a chance its a beautiful smooth and peaceful way to see the world in yet another way.
