Albany Balloon Festival Photoblog

Since 2008, our family has made the short trip up I-5 each August to attend the Northwest Art and Air Festival in Albany, Oregon.
This was the first year that Julia, Anna, and my Mother-in-law Kathleen made the trip without me. They all brought back some great photos, including these three of one of my favorite balloons: Checkmate.

    Hey, Jon Dragt shared this blog with me. My husband, Tim, and I own Checkmate. I am very flattered that Checkmate is one of your favorite balloons. Drop by and say “Hi” the next time you see us inflating.

        Sure, we’d love a copy. When I’m crewing for the balloon I often don’t get the best photos. Just send it to my e-mail address. Thanks! You are most kind.
