This morning before church, Nathan and I enjoyed getting a glimpse, up close and personal, of the Taos Mountain Balloon Rally that takes place here every year. About 25 hot air balloons participated, launching at different times on a rotating basis and making for a colorful display in the skies!
There they go!
The balloons are so much bigger looking on the ground than in the air!
Doesn't the sky look amazing?
The fire being blown into this balloon in preparation for lift-off warmed us even at a distance on this cold, autumn morning!
Almost ready to launch with passengers aboard.
A little display of patriotism.
And they're off!
