Napa Balloon Ride - Mar 25, 2015
While staying in Napa, we booked a Balloon Ride for Sunday morning. Unfortunately, it was cancelled due to weather, so we rescheduled for Wednesday. We were fortunate to have nearly perfect weather for the flight. It was a great experience. It's nearly impossible to get air sickness, as you are literally floating with the breeze. The only real control is to go up or down, relying on the varying wind currents at different heights. We ascended to a height of about 2,500 feet, and at times we were traveling at over 25 mph. The strange thing is...it felt as if we weren't moving at all. A really unique experience.
