Hot Air Balloon Ride
- Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

November 12, 2008


Narrowly squeezed between many rainy days on a cold November morning I got to go on my second hot air balloon ride. This time for the purpose to see some fall colors.  Except, because of some canceled flights, as a result of weather, we did not get to see as much color as we hoped.  There was light wind and we only traveled 10 km over the 2 hours it took to find a place to land.
