We always sit out in the yard and hope to see hot air balloons from the Great Forest Park Balloon Race float in the distance. Normally they fly in a northwesterly direction but yesterday, wowser, they drifted south west and came right over the Concordia Seminary campus. At least the south side of the campus. Ferdie and I decided to walk down into the Sieck building parking lot to see if there were any balloons coming when all of a sudden a roar went up from people sitting in Demun Park. I looked up and there was the Energizer Bunny right next to Luther Tower. I ran faster than I've had to run in years, yelling at Dale to get out of his lawn chair and up the hill. He thought there was something wrong until he he saw:
Some photos look much better clicked.
Down the alley they flew
Off into what turned out to be one of the most dramatic sunsets ever.
