Hot Air Balloons

After driving around chasing hot air balloons, we lucked up and caught one landing. The owners of this one were such really nice people. They offered to let the kids help them pack it up and climb into the basket. I was so surprised to learn that the basket really was a wicker basket and very strong. Also since they were competing for the nationals they carry 4 full propane tanks so they do not risk running out before the competition ends. It was interesting seeing them just landing all over Anderson---right in homeowners back yards. I also ran across this website that tells the history of Hot Air Balloons and thought it was interesting:
