39th Annual Balloon Stampede, Saturday Morning Launch


I haven’t attended a Balloon Stampede Launch in several years.  It takes place every year on Mother’s Day Weekend, in Walla Walla, WA.  Come rain or come shine!  The balloons don’t get to fly every year, but we have been fortunate for a few years now.

Today, even though I couldn’t get anyone to go with me, I still had a lot of fun.  I will post just a few photos here, but if you would like to see more, I have posted the album on my facebook page.

Here’s my favorite photo.  I think I could stay here awhile . . .

Feels like home . . .

I think this was everybody’s favorite balloon this year . . .

So creative!

So creative!

Happy Mother’s Day Weekend everybody!  Hope yours is a good one.

    Beautiful. Never been on a hot air balloon ride – too scared – but looks fun!

  2. I bet this is an amazing spectacle. Very calming.
