This was a truly amazing experience. Captain “Bubba” (Andy) was fantastic, and we were never worried about our safety. The ride was smooth as silk, and the views were incredible!

Cap'n Bubba is a trip in his own right, and added an unexpected fun touch to the magnificence of a sunrise balloon ride. We floated over 25-30 elk and 2 bears. Views of the mountains as the sun rises over them is magical.
