[photos] Flying with the Emerald City
As noted yesterday [ jlake.com | LiveJournal ], the_child and I went flying with elusivem in the good aerostat Emerald City. A good time was had by all, except possibly the balloon envelope.
Herewith are the photos…
One intrepid flyer
Another one, not quite like the other one
Basket is out of the trailer
Laying out the envelope
Inflating the envelope
It gets bigger
The neighbors get theirs up
Getting ready to fly
Away we go!
Up up up
The view from the basket
Looking up into the envelope from below
Valley, NE, as we sail westward
Chasing Celebration as she leads us on
Cruising low over the Platte River
Flying through the corn as we land
As usual, more at the Flickr set.
