Lake Dipping

If the wind is right, the more adventurous balloon pilots try to dip in Memorial Lake shortly after take-off. This first one is very daring - the pilot was strapped in a simple seat hanging below the balloon.
The huge boot succeeded - his basket was dripping water after he dipped. That's some impressive piloting!

  7. Bill wondered how the boot pilot can see where he's going ( I knew he would enjoy these two posts and he did! )
