Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013 by Adirondack Balloon Flights

We just had a very nice patch of weather at the end of September for doing some early fall foliage hot air balloon rides in our beautiful Adirondacks/Lake George/Albany-The Capital District region.

The weekend flights started on Saturday evening with a group of friends, Jeff and Maureen from Aberdeen NJ and Rose and Michael from Brooklyn NY.

I wish that the weather forecast for the coming weekend for our Adirondack, Lake George Region was as nice as it was for the last 10 days or so, but, it looks like it will be a bit of a challenge to get many flights in thru early next week. There still is a lot of time left to enjoy our fall foliage flights, so get your reservation in before the season ends. Call me @ 518-793-6342
