Just about one year ago I went to my first balloon festival. It was the Animas Valley Balloon Rally in Durango, Colorado. This is where I met Deborah Rice, the pilot of Foxtrot. What an inspiration she is! Her chase crew saw how enthused I was about the adventure and they let me join them. I rode in the back of a pick-up truck with my gear. So much fun! Here’s a one-minute visual I made to capture the beauty of the day.
