Hot Air Balloons

More hot air balloons, the lighter than air aircraft that everyone enjoys! Another late blog, photographed in 2010, and put up today September 27th, 2016. This was a trip to Detroit to see one of my customers who was having a problem. On the way there, somewhere around Kalamazoo (might have even been Kalamazoo) I saw some these balloons north of I-94. I was not sure what they were doing, but wanted to investigate. Glad I did. They were doing some king of run, and one leg had them steer to a target to drop their flag on. It was cool to see them dodge each other, get position over one another, drop, swing their flag with a weight on the end, and let it fly to the target. After, they had to do a full burn to get out of there because other balloons were right behind them, let alone trees if front. This first photo was the drive to Detroit, near Cline Avenue. I took that photo to start my journey, and boy did it end up a fun one.


I was zigzagging all through town trying to find where these puffs of art were diving at. I finally got through the maze of streets.
