Wild West Balloon Festival

Cody, Wyoming

August 2, 2014

The weather did not cooperate with the launch of the 19th annual Wild West Balloon Festival in Cody, WY.  The sunrise launch was delayed for an hour and a half waiting for the dark clouds to clear. Good thing they had lots of coffee and fresh donuts.

Here are a few of the balloons that caught my eye.

The first firing of the propane burner is the tricky part to get the balloon upright.  The sound really gets the crowds attention.


Humpty Dumpty was all together again.
