Getting up early on a Sunday can be worthwhile! After waking up at 5 a.m., we drove to Mukwonago, Wisconsin (about 10 miles from home), arriving just before 6 a.m., in time to watch the filling and launching of 12 hot air balloons as part of the Balloons Over Mukwonago event. As usual, Garry had his camera and videorecorder with him.
Because Garry lived in Mukwonago for more than 25 years, he knows his way around town and the surrounding areas. We drove west towards Phantom Lake, following the flight through town.
