Bear in the Air
Smokey Bear gets in a few hops across the dunes despite some wind challenges Sunday, Sept. 18, at the White Sands National Monument. More than 2,000 people showed up to see a variety of different balloonists take to the air in the 25th annual White Sands International Balloon Invitational. In addition to New Mexico, there were pilots and balloons from Arizona, Texas, Florida and Missouri.
