Hot Air Balloon Ride
- Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

May 21, 2007


On a beautiful May Morning I went on a Hot Air Balloon flight. I had tickets for over two years trying to arrange a flight.  It was a more wonderfully experience than I could imagine. 

Every year at the beginning of September I try to make my way to Gatineau Hot Air Balloon Festival in Gatineau Quebec.  The same location we took off from. Here are some pictures and panoramas form previous years.  Below are five panoramas from the day of my flight and below them some pictures.
