LAKE BOON


Stow and Hudson, Mass.


BALLOON ON THE LAKE

First photo by Theresa O'Riorden; other photos by Brenda Mascari.

It wasn't supposed to end this way... Sunday morning, August 12 2007, may have looked like a nice day for a hot-air balloon flight from Minuteman Airfield in Stow. But it turned too windy, and Lake Boon seemed to be the only place to settle... Click on the photo for a larger view.

But when a hot air balloon lands, it needs to be deflated, rolled up, and put in the chase car. Can't do that on the water, so this one had a boat-tow to dry land...
