Hot Air

One of the events I make a point of not missing every year at the Elkhart County 4H fair is their Balloon Chase, even though I need to leave the house at 6AM to get there in time to watch them set up.  Below are just some of photos taken this morning.

Before they inject hot air, they use big fan to partially inflate the balloon.
