Nineteenth Annual Colorado River Balloon Crossing
November 20-22, 2009, Yuma Arizona

It's the 19th Annual Colorado River Crossing Hot Air Balloon Festival. I enjoy watching the balloons rise, and have quite a few photos from the festivals of previous years. But this time was special, for we enjoying the morning's event with friends.
