Hot Air Balloon

In January, I heard an odd sound outside our house. It was the sound of a hot air balloon doing a number of burns. This was not the first time I've heard this near our house. A few times a year, the winds seem to bring a balloon to our neighborhood. This time it flew right past our house


As we live on a hill, it usually takes a lot of burns to get past our neighborhood. This balloon came relatively close to the house. I got a few good pictures out of the front door.


Then I got a few pictures out across the backyard


It seems this balloon is known as "High-Ho" piloted by "Don Dougherty" of the local hot air balloon club: Ballooning Society of Pikes Peak
