Jesse and dad on the hot air balloon, left of center.

We are about 2000' above sea level. We looked hard for kangaroos running around beneath.

Our first time hot air ballooning. Loved it.

Part of out experience was being given the "privilege" of helping them to fold the balloon after the trip was over. I think they took lessons from Tom Sawyer.

Here is the entire balloon -- and this is what was helping to keep us flying? Yikes!


Jesse is tuckered out from all of the jet lag, along with the early mornings and late evenings. I am too....


Jesse phoning home. We are at the airport ready to leave for Perth, with a layover at Ayers Rock.

We both ate Rooburgers. Yes, that's right. Made from kangaroo meat. Low in fat and cholesterol-free. And pretty tasty...


In front of the Youth Hostel in Cairns. Ready to leave on the next leg of our trip to Ayers Rock.


Can you see Ayers Rock off in the distance? Look at the barrenness of the land surrounding it. This is what much of the internal part of Australia looks like.

Here I am with Ayers Rock off in the distance to my right.
