I finally managed to get myself out of bed to make it to a morning launch at the annual Adirondack Balloon Festival. It's amazing how quickly the scene turns from a quiet field full of trucks and trailers to a field and sky full of rising balloons with the sound of burners igniting from every direction. The bystanders also morph from sleepy zombies clutching their morning coffee and little ones bundled up in blankets, to chattering, pointing enthusiasts, cheering and snapping photos in every direction.
