Every year, there is a local event called Valleyfest. One of the events at Valleyfest is a hot air balloon launch, but in order to see it, you have to be up before the sun, as the balloons are inflated at 6am. Mike had to be to work early anyway, so I set my alarm for 5am, got up and headed over to the balloon launch site before the sun was up. Unfortunately, due to a slight breeze, the balloons were unable to launch. Instead of making it a wasted morning, I walked around the park and waited for the sun to rise so I could practice some long exposure photography on the waterfalls.
