2011 Galesburg Balloon Race - Explore!

Drove down to Lake Storey in Galesburg for an afternoon of kayaking. Turns out they were having a balloon race in the early evening. Because of the wind (or lack of) their angle of entry to the landing area sure played some havoc with the setting sun. Still, colorful to see many balloons in the air at once. The lake added some nice reflections as well. Sure wish it would cool off! Come on Autumn!
