NYC Skyline Flight - Somerset, NJ - 9/10/03

Keith Sproul and I enjoyed great flights in our two homebuilt balloons this evening, and I couldn't help but climb up to a suitable altitude to get a view of the City. I got a few pictures of the skyline, but Keith took them home with his camera. I counted seven balloons in the air tonight - not the 22 from the weekend, but not bad at all for a Wednesday evening.

The weather today was frighteningly reminiscent of that day in 2001. Deep blue skies, high pressure dominating the region, just the right temperature, not a cloud in sight... Such a beautiful, perfect day. Brought back some vivid memories.

(More pictures to be put up after the weekend)
