It’s been four years since I last rode in the Blue Moon hot air balloon. She has a new pilot now, Dan Ewer, carrying on the tradition of former pilot, Roy Walz, flying over White Sands.
We could photograph the sky from the ground, but not photograph the ground from the sky. White Sands is a protected area.
There’s a song for the above picture. But first we must get there.
And, the chase is on.
Pretty good run for a windy day.
We’re a well tutored crew.
