A quiet morning with just a hint of a breeze made for a great time to launch hot air balloons. The balloonist make short work of assembling and getting the balloon into the air. Like a well oiled machine it only took about half an hour to get the first balloons on their way.

Silently, except for the occasional burst of flame the balloons lift off into the sky following a course determined by the wind currents.
