The first weekend of March for 15 years in a row, the annual Winthrop Balloon Roundup is held in the Methow Valley. This year the Saturday launch was cancelled due to poor wind conditions, but Sunday was glorious! This photo is a little more than halfway from the launch point in Winthrop to the end of the flight at the Smoke Jumper Base near Twisp.
