Cappadocia, Turkey

I have always wanted to visit the Cappadocia region of Turkey to see the fairy chimneys, houses carved into the soft volcanic tuff of these dome like rock formations formed by weathering and erosion of the surrounding soil. Above is the view from our cave room balcony.
At sunrise the balloon flights take off over Goreme and it was a magical moment watching them ascend into the sky, occasionally hearing the hiss of the gas that fires the balloon propulsion.
It was a cold, clear morning with more and more balloons filling the sky.
