Our family took a balloon ride this morning with rainbow riders and it was thoroughly enjoyable. We were 2 groups each in their own compartment. We left at daybreak, but it was so worth it. Thank you pilot John for a most enjoyable, entertaining and perfect landing experience; only to be topped with really good champagne and snacks afterwards.
