BC: Hot Air Balloon Ride July 17, 2012


1: Sundance Balloons

5: The balloon inflating, slowly getting bigger and bigger...

7: And then

8: Up in the Air!

9: This is where we lifted off | La Barriere Park, just south of Winnipeg

12: Chase Van chasing us :D

14: The burners at rest

15: The burners aflame

18: We flew south-east of Winnipeg approximately 28km as the balloon flies. It took about an hour and a quarter to fly that far. At times we just barely skimmed over fields and other times we soared at 1500ft in the air.

20: This is the view from where I was at landing. Upside-down.

21: This is how we landed. It was a rough landing because the wind picked up right when we were going down. So we ended up tipped over in a ditch. | Mark and I were here, facing up, with our backs to the ground.

22: The Journey Ends

23: At the end of the flight we celebrate with a champagne toast - a tradition that goes back to the very first balloon flight in the 1700's
