Sunday Snapshot

Balloon landing, Birch Run

Driving home from the U.P. late Saturday afternoon I was surprised to see two hot air balloons drifting from the east toward Birch Run.

I was pulling off I-75 to gas up at that exit, and decided to chase the balloons first. I was not alone; three or four other vehicles arrived at the school yard just as the first balloon landed. A waiting van had the name on it: Blown Away.

The second balloon landed further to the west.

Balloon too

What a nice little diversion and jolt of color on a grey winter’s day.
