Photo of the hot air balloon basket in Hot Air Ballooning

There's some terrible lens flare on this photo, but it does give you an idea of what the basket looks like inside. The white loops are there for you to hold onto during landing. You can also see the red seats that you sit on for landing. I had been warned that the baskets sometimes topple over on landing, but our landing was so smooth we didn't feel it touch down. We were surprised when one of the ground team just appeared over the edge of the basket, looking in.
