Flying Above Fairy Chimneys Tall chimney rocks scatter across this landscape where I'm sure both tinkerbell and the lost boys have carved out their homes in the caves. The day starts in black with the first sounds of the gas flame blowing up the balloon for our flight. We climbed into the giant basket at first light and slowly floated up, up, and away to take in one of the most glorious views my eyes have ever feasted on. Hundreds of balloons punctuate the sky in bright colors and dance between the rock formations seeking squeals of delight from their passengers. Every view is different whether its the tall chimneys, dragon backbone ridges, rose valley, or white capped volcano... 360 degrees of spectacular.
