We had tried going Hot Air Ballooning before but weather plays a big factor in that from wind to rain.
You can read and look at pictures of that here
We were up early at 4a.m. and my Husband called to see if we were going and it was a go. It was a cool morning.
We got to the park at 6a.m. The first ones there.
It took us half an hour to drive through Letchworth State Park to get to the area of Balloons Over Letchworth.
I have to say i was like a little kid waiting to go up.
Here is the time we spent
Now were going up :)
Our Balloon chasers following us so they can help at the end get the balloon packed and to get a drive back to the park. The pick up truck with trailer and than the van
Sean Quigley FAA Licensed Pilot
We saw lots of Deer running through out our ride

Horses and Sheep
Tipping over and getting ready to pack up

Getting ready for a glass of Champagne
These guys were great helping out. As we hand landed on an Alfalfa field and they moved us while in the Hot Air Balloon while we were slightly up getting soaked and helping Sean
Sean was great also taking us on this ride and getting us safe to the ground :)
All i can say is if you ever get a chance to go Hot Air Ballooning go ahead and do it. But remember it might not turn out for you to go. As weather may seem fine to you but remember the Pilot is taking care of you and making sure everything is fine.
It was well worth the wait.
Since being in this area a couple of times we went to a very nice restaurant for dinner
was very tasty and sweet and well you can share it as it is a good size as you can see here.
I think it would be great to go Hot Air Ballooning in the fall because of the colours.
We had such a great time something i recommend.
