Ballooning Show and Tell

Riding in a hot air balloon is one of the most scenic trips a person can take. I have always been fascinated by ballooning and wanted to try piloting a balloon in this week's Show and Tell! The wonderful pilots of Endless Mountains Hot Air Balloons out of Lackawanna County, taught me how to safely operate the balloon and how to release just enough hot air and propane into the balloon, to make it fly. After a brief lesson, I was cruising above the Lackawanna State Park in no time. It was one of the most breath-taking stories I have ever had the pleasure of doing and I can't wait to make another trip into the sunset!
