Driving from Bluff, Utah towards Monument Valley, turn right into the Valley of the Gods. We caravanned with the other vehicles tied to the balloons with their crews.
We found out about the annual Bluff hot air balloon weekend that takes place in January each year while we were on a native American ruins trip in May of 2013. What really had us salivating though was that they flew the balloons in the Valley of the Gods. Although the fog made the flight questionable, the weather gods were kind enough to give us some sunlight on the scene by mid morning. We were not disappointed-What a background!
