I've been up in a balloon myself, but only once. I have a vivid imagination and all I kept worrying about was the bottom of the basket being strong enough to hold us without giving way. Other than that, it was so beautiful and peaceful up there.
CmdrK, I see your roads aren't any better than the ones down here...that's a heck of a pot hole beyond that sign.
Another thing I saw at the ghost town...not to worry though, it was behind glass. But living in the desert in the country as I do, I have to be alert for these things all the time.
