    Hot Air Balloon Ride - Pics

    My wife and I have been talking about taking a hot air balloon ride for some time.
    I’ve been saving my money and for an anniversary present this year we finally got to go on one.
    I was a little mad that I forgot to take my GPS with me, but the pilot had one on the balloon.

    We took off from Lake Redman.








    We skimmed the top of the water.








    We where heading north. This is when we where the highest. The pilot said that we where around 1200’.

    We where not alone in the sky.






    We where flying over York. Things looked a bit familiar. I realized I was floating over where I work.










    I hope to take another ride again.

    I might add some pics from the ground that my parents where taking while we floated away. I just need to get them from their camera.

    Awesome! I love the pictures with the balloon shadow on the ground. Don't drop your camera! I won a hot-air balloon ride in a raffle when I was real young. I want to go one again someday. Thanks for sharing! Glad you had a good time.

    That was really cool. I'd love to do that.

    Did you happen to get any pics of the goodyear warehouse in York?

    elgecko, I'm from SE PA as well. Paoli to be exact. I think my dad actually took us on a hot air balloon ride with the same company, because I remember that van as well as the front yard we took off from.

    Hope you had fun! I know we did, landing was a little scary though.
