Syracuse Balloon Fest 2013
Meet Pea-nut The Flying Elephant (or you can like her on Facebook). Pea-nut was on display at the Syracuse (formerly Jamesville) Balloon Fest this past weekend. I can’t quite tell what the girl in red is trying to do here??
I also learned quite a bit about hot air ballooning from the owner of Endless Mountains Hot Air Balloons who was gracious enough to let me get close for some shots. Did you know that hot air balloon captains are licensed just like airline pilots are? And that the balloons and the company are inspected before each flight as well as at least annually? Since a hot air balloon ride is on my bucket list this is good information to have!!
