Lots of Hot Air

Sunrise Lift Off

Rainbow In the Sky


Before the sun rises, when all the earth is still dark and only the birds are just starting to awaken, the die hard balloonists head out in the damp dewy air. The mist is still hovering above the ground as the rush of hot air from a fiery shooting flame begin to fill material and forms begin to take shape. Soon, the balloons are glowing against the dark sky that is beginning to lighten with its own display of bright colors. Before you know it, the air is filled with a plentitude of all different colors and shapes, floating higher and higher and slowly drifting out of sight. Every year, a multitude of hot air ballons lift off from an air field with the Adirondack mountains as their backdrop.
