Our 2001 trip ended on September 10th, the day we drove home. An easy date to remember because everything changed the next day. More personally, this was the last trip I got to take with my dad, he lost his battle with cancer before the 2002 trip.

I was sitting at my desk and my mom was looking out over the Lake, as usual. She said " Is that a hot air balloon?" Well...it was actually 8 of them! We couldn't believe it as they have never come this way before! Launched from Glens Falls, the wind blew them this direction for the first time. They were well over the mountain ridge and my camera was on full zoom, we estimate that they were anywhere from 3 to 8 miles away! (varied).
The pictures from night time are from Moonglow, where the balloons are lit at Battlefield Park by the flame that makes them fly (they are tethered)

An absolutely incredible trip. I had no idea that in 2012, when we left, it would be my last time to Lake George in 4 years, after having visited every year of my life. Health problems which almost killed me in 2013 and continuing health problems for myself and my family prevented us going. But we finally got back in September 2016! Our trip lasted from September 8th-September 12th, although most of the first and last days were spent driving to and from Lake George, which is also captured in this album. I cannot put into words how much this trip meant to me, even if we could no longer stay at my "home away from home". Pictures 451-874 were taken by my brother.

From September 7th to 18th. During the trip, I took 4030 pictures, more than I had taken in some entire years, all crammed into 11 days! There are also four albums from this trip in the Automotive Photography section and two in Sports. My favorite part of this trip, besides the Adirondack Nationals, was Prospect Mountain, which got it's own album.
