Had a very nice balloon trip. Was very peaceful and relaxing. The owners and crew were awesome. They obviously have a great passion for ballooning and that enthusiasm is relayed to the customer. The digital pictures received at the end were awesome.

Our son had rode with them 2 years ago and set up the trip for us.Dan was great to point out the different sights as we traveled about 1000 feet above the ground. Seen a herd of sheep and the guard dog.
