Beautiful countryside seen from above

Every September Lycoming County holds a Balloonfest and Air show.  Anyone who lives in Muncy Hills is lucky enough to observe the show from any number of vantage points on our back roads.  The balloons got a slow start this morning, rising and falling back to the ground, some eventually making it over the ridge and valleys making for a beautiful sight.
