Balloons Over Lake Travis

You see hot air balloons from time to time, but they always seem to give you pause. They're beautiful, interesting, unusual, and just a little different from our everyday lives. This shot, taken just after daybreak, shows hot air balloons in flight over Lake Travis at Mansfield Dam Park.

The park accommodates many groups, including scuba divers, swimmers, boaters, picnickers, and nature enthusiasts. Other features include central recreation area offers picnic sites, a playground, horseshoe pits, chess tables, and a panoramic view of the Lake Travis basin.
Keep your eyes to the sky, and maybe you'll be lucky enough to see a sight like this some fine Central Texas morning too!

  1. We didn't make it to the ballon festival at Lake Travis this year, but we had fun at the event last year (2008).
