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)
