It's that time of year again - where the weather gets a little warmer, the trees are leafed out, and the hot-air balloons take off! This balloon was floating above Pewaukee the other day when I noticed it was being followed by several cars and a "chase" truck. They were in front of me on my way home and so I was able to watch it land in a field to the left of the road while the vehicles patiently waited.
The area has lots of open space, parks, farms fields and such, so it's ideal for this adventurous "sport." During the Waukesha County Fair in July, there is usually a fleet of them flying overhead for several days.
