Rope Burn

Attempting to launch this Hot Air Balloon near High River, Alberta proved to be challenging, as the wind was a factor with the balloon blowing around. The guy on the rope was stuggling to keep from ending up in the slough. To inflate the envelop, you use a gas powered fan then as the envelope is filling with air, you can fire the burners to completely fill the envelope. In the end it all worked out with a sucessful launch filling the skies with balloons, framed by the Rockies of southern Alberta.
