Freedom Weekend Aloft balloon landing

Freedom Weekend Aloft, balloon landing in Greenville, Sc.  This photo was taken by Denton Harryman and posted at GreenvilleDailyPhoto.com on 5/30/2008.
At the end of our balloon ride we landed in a field behind these houses. Our balloon is the one being backed up. The inflated balloon, in the photo, landed shortly after we did. It was interesting to see how the crew walked the balloon between the houses, set it down in a cul-de-sac, visited with all the residents, and efficiently packed up.

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of riding in a hot air balloon competition as part of the Freedom Weekend Aloft festival held near Greenville. I would like to give a special thanks to pilot David Fields and his Droppin-In Ballooning crew for making my first balloon flight a safe and very enjoyable experience … I will share more photos tomorrow of the outstanding views of Greenville which this ride provided … Today’s photo shows Heritage Park in Simpsonville. Here it the map location. I understand David Fields offers ballon rides for a fee year round.
