Photo: Flying a Balloon Close to the Canyon Wall

Our hot air balloon pilot could control the altitude, but of course not the direction of our balloon flight.  When we drifted towards lower Oak Creek, our pilot dropped when we crossed the ridge.

Ordinarily one would think that a photo such as this was taken while hiking, but this was from a balloon flying close and lower than the canyon ridge.

And I did not use a telephoto for this photo.  We were actually this close.

This week we have photos from a very old section of Rabat, Morocco, posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

The hot air balloon trip was a very fun activity, and flying so close to the cliff and ground was thrilling.
