What I Saw at 8:00 A.M.

balloon in the Rio Grande Gorge

Just south of the John Dunn Bridge near Arroyo Hondo on the Rio Grande

Okay, sure, just what you’d expect to find at the bottom of a gorge. They’d actually just touched the water with the basket, but I didn’t get my camera out in time. A little farther up the road from where I shot this, I saw the flat place where they launch these things. You would not believe the road that takes you there. No way could a balloon ride be more scary! I figure by the time the customers reach the launching point, even the most acrophobic leap on board in gratitude.

      Why thank you, Beth! You ought to write. That stuff you put down years ago had more life than whatever I was whining about, and just think about the crazy shit that’s gone down since.
