I have a list of ideas that I’d love to complete at some point in my life. One that has been on there for ages is to ride in a hot air balloon. So, when the opportunity presented itself for a chance to participate in this one-of-a-kind adventure in Moab, I was ecstatic!
My morning started off with a drive to meet up with the pilot, Lou Bartell. It was cool to see the whole process as he and his crew set up the balloon for our ride.
I’m the kind of person that loves to sit by the window whenever I take a flight anywhere. Riding in the basket with everyone gave me new insight to canyon country. Quietly rising above the mesas and buttes and watching the trails criss-crossing below offered views that can not be descibribed.
This has to be one of my new favorites.
