Foliage Finds: Vermilion County by Hot Air Balloon


During the fall, the views of changing colors on the trees can be spectacular. While the sights are incredible from the ground, getting to take them in from a hot air balloon can be even more amazing. It is the reason that it is a popular time of year for pilots like Larry Owen to take to his balloon the Jolly Rollo and get a glimpse. 

ciLiving Storyteller Ryan Burk got to ride along with Owen for a one of a kind flight over Central Illinois to see how the colors look from above. 

Larry Owen offers rides on the Jolly Rollo for events throughout Central Illinois and beyond. For more information, you can visit
