I own no land, instead I have wheelestate. I’ve been a full time RVer since 1997. Working summers as a Park Ranger takes me to many beautiful places and playing during the winter takes me to many more. This blog is simply the story of my life's adventures.


Thank you for stopping by. Just to let you know, I'm still blogging but have moved to Geogypsytraveler. Hope you'll follow my adventures. Just click here.

Hot-air balloons

01 Hot air balloons from SR74 E AZ (1024x768)
I want to look down on the landscape from high in the air. Don’t have wings but a hot-air balloon would do.

Berta and I were headed to the Phoenix area a couple weeks ago driving east past Lake Pleasant when these funny speaks appeared in the sky way ahead.

Not easy to get a good shot through the (dirty) windshield and, unfortunately, no time to stop.

Looking good way up there. Take hitchhikers?

Hot air balloons fly frequently in our area and I would love to go up in one. But the $300 price keeps me on the ground.

This is also something I've never done. I'd like to take a balloon over Turkey or Egypt--that just sounds particularly romantic.

Just gorgeous! When I lived in Tucson, I was coming back from a Phoenix horse show on a Sunday morning. Driving the rig full of horses and coming around a mountain bend..there it was! A hot air balloon show. Majestic it was! Hundreds in the sky :)
Hope you are well!
