For the second year in a row, we checked out the Autumn Aloft Hot Air Balloon Festival in Park City. We dread getting out of bed at the crack of dawn, but it’s well worth it! The balloons are so colorful and peaceful as they take flight. All you hear is the rumbling of the burner flames as they climb into the sky. So awesome.
Before the balloons take off, a lot of work is done to get them filled with air. Teamwork is pretty important here.
Once the balloons are filled with air from the team’s fans, the burners get the balloon up, off the ground and in to flight position. Then the magic really starts to happen. The balloons are huge, and are all sorts of shapes, sizes and colors.
The amount of people that come out to watch the balloons fly is crazy. Adults and kids are mesmerized, myself included. If you’re ever in the Salt Lake or Park City area around the time of this festival, check it out. You won’t be disappointed!
