The idea of a balloon fight came to mind, when I was trying to find something that my "senior" parents would enjoy while visiting Jackson Hole. I was glad to find an experience that we could share together, but expected it to be a bit mellow for my active lifestyle. The flight was scenic, fun and worthwhile! With 2 companies to choose from, I chose one that offered a more private experience by using a smaller 6 passenger basket (vs large 15 passenger basket). Colin, the owner and pilot, was very skilled and brought us down to hover within the tops of the aspen trees. He also offered to drop down above the large elk herd we saw in the field, but was sensitive to my desire not to bother the elk (the blower can scare them). The experience is not cheep, partly because the balloon companies pay launch/landing fees to property owners, but if you choose to do a balloon ride sometime in your life, this is a beautifully scenic place to do it... ranch land, rivers, mountain range, wildlife... its all there!
