Balloons Over Bend

BalloonsI just happened to be awake early this morning and drove down to the Old Mill District to watch the Balloons Over Bend launch. It’s quite a sight — these giant orbs lifting off to float in crystal clear skies. The two balloons pictured here briefly touched down on the Deschutes River, much to the delight of sightseers on the bridge and paddleboarders out on the water.
