Today, you see was the day for Prescott Valley's annual hot air balloon fest.
It was a perfect day with a beautiful clear blue sky as the balloonists began readying their crafts.
A large fan is used to begin inflating the fabric globe.
Flames from a burner in the basket complete the job.
One of the crewmen told me he'd heard there were 24 balloons this year.
And then it was time to fly.
What a great day for a balloon ride.
