9/11 2012: from the air

Ok this afternoon I took part in the coolest thing: a 9/11 commemorative hot air balloon ride over Chester County.  There were several balloons.  I rode in one shaped like a giant American flag.

I had never been on a hot air balloon ride and this was an awesome experience.

We left from near Eagle and landed in Devault.

When we took off, we were joined by many, many spectators and at least five fire companies.  It was incredibly moving to see all those first responders on 9/11.

I have hundreds of photos to go through.

More tomorrow!
