Ron Ernzen and Kathy Hiatt, of Re/Max Crossroads Realty, each made their first hot-air balloon trip in a vessel like the one in Re/Max's logo earlier this month. Local Re/Max agencies are allowed the use of the hot-air balloon a few times per year. Ernzen and Hiatt took off from the Hillcrest neighborhood in Lansing and landed by the home of Jim and Dorothy Smith in western Leavenworth. "It was wonderful," Hiatt said. "We saw a lot of wildlife - foxes and a lot of deer."
