An old maroon hot air balloon

Okay, it isn't maroon, but I adore Owl City so I had to make the song reference! My mom went out to check the mail and she came in saying, "you left too soon, there is a hot air balloon flying over grandma's house." And I look out my window and see this big ol dude flying so close that I had to take a picture! And I was taking a few shots and then I saw the center ignite and I was like....I need that picture, and finally got one. Soon after it started flying back up so I was happy I was able to get the shots I did. I love hot air balloons so much!

That must be so cool. It must be so cooler when you experience riding with the balloon.

We have a hot air balloon festival here in the summer. It is so cool to wake up early and see dozens of all different balloons in the air.

Oh I hope you could post those photos here. I've always wanted to ride a hot air balloon but I have not seen an actual one yet in this city.

I have seen those before they are so cool! I love when it gets cooler out because you see like 20 of them fly over the mountains.

That's so cool. Every once in awhile, I see the Good Year blimp fly over my neighborhood. I think te last time I saw it was this summer on a clear afternoon.

we get those around here at times, I love looking at them because I got some history with good year blimps. My great grandma was one of the ladys that work on the first good year blimp!
