Wyoming Hot Air Balloon Sails Over London Bridge
Cloud Kisser is the Name of the Riverton, Wyoming hot air balloon that sailed over the London Bridge in Lake Havasu City, Arizona, according to County 10.
I am sure most read this and thought what an accomplishment to have a Wyoming hot air balloon be apart of an international hot air balloon rally. Even though the balloon festival was held in Arizona, there is still some international appeal to the bridge.
The London Bridge was constructed in 1831 in London, England. In 1962, the city of London sold the bridge to McCulloch Oil Corporation. They brought the bridge to the United States and re-constructed it over a part of the Colorado River in Arizona. The bridge was purchased mainly as a tourist attraction.
So, at the end of the day, did the Riverton, Wyoming hot air balloon make it overseas? No, but it still traveled a great distance over a huge piece of world history.
