Hot Air Balloon Rides- When Is The Best Time To Fly?

Why do we fly in the mornings only?

Hot air balloons require stable air conditions which occur at sunrise prior to the earth heating up and thermal conditions occuring on the ground. This is why balloons take off at sunrise, and need to land  before the winds come down to gound level
