FC: Hot Air Balloon Ride 2 0 1 2
1: 5:00 AM | June 14th | Come Fly Away with Me, My Love!
2: Scott and I gathered with Airquest Adventures and prepared for our balloon ride. | Preparing for Take Off! | Scott's Christmas Present!
3: We were so excited for our first balloon ride. Laura Badgley took pictures from the ground for us.
4: We boarded the balloon, got a brief lesson on safety, and slowly lifted off the ground. The wind carried us up and away. It was amazing to see the ground fade away below us. Beautiful views of the Lewis/Clark Valley.
5: Scott was a little nervous at over a 1000 feet above the ground, and no safety net. He hung on for dear life when any of us moved.
6: Soaring Above It All!
9: The Inside View of the Balloon From Down Below!
10: One more item off the bucket list!
13: The views of the valley were spectacular. It was worth getting up so early! | Mom and Dad's house. | Nothing is worth more than this day!
14: People came out of their houses when they heard the whoosh of the flame lifting the balloon.
16: UP, UP, and AWAY
17: IN MY BEAUTIFUL BALLOON!
19: It is so peaceful and calm soaring above the valley
20: Summer time, and the livin' is easy...
22: "So much depends on a red wheelbarrow..." | William Carlos Williams | Early Bird Supply and the Aquatic Center. | Views of CHS and the beautiful LC Valley
23: We landed smoothly in the middle of the road. Good thing it was early and there weren't many cars around. | It is tradition to pop the bubbly after the first ride, so we celebrated with mimosas! | Thanks Airquest Adventures for the ride of a lifetime!
