We had booked our balloon ride with Gary a month in advance but we found out that the weather has to be almost perfect for him to take off since he is a licensed balloon pilot and takes the safety of his passengers very seriously. While we waited, we were entertained with stories of the area and facts about balloon flying. We were disappointed when he finally scrubbed the flight and informed us that he was booked for the next day. He did promise to try and get one another balloonists to take us up alongside his. The next day was perfect and Eddie, Gary's former balloon instructor, arrived just in time. We all went up together which gave us the opportunity to exchange pictures with the couple in the other balloon. The trip lasted about an hour and a half and was breathtaking. This was one of my "bucket list" items that was well worth the money. After the flight, we were treated to a champagne brunch with pastries and fruit from the local bakery. We also received a more thorough and entertaining education of the history of ballooning. If the weather is right, this is a must.
