my wife took me for my b-day and it was heavenly. you feel that you are in good hands with mike and his guys b/c they've been doing this for a decade and they love what they do. they are also very good natured fellows which lends a bouyancy to the trip.
there was a surprisingly secure feeling being inside the basket and everything is great when you look toward the horizon or up into the ballon. when you look straight down, however, it can be challenging to those who are a bit squeamish with heights. i would count myself as in the bit squeamish demographic but it is totally worthwhile because you start to get used to looking down and challending yourself to look down.
i especially liked the tree canopy part of the trip where mike came down to a forested area and you were real close to the tree tops. it was like being in the movie "Avatar".
my camera jammed and so mike let me borrow his and then he emailed the photos to me. brunch at kendall jackson was a nice touch.
cant wait to go back there with other friends to do it again!
ps - we did it on april 26 and the temp was managable but make sure to bring mittens and layers of clothing (tennish shoes with thick socks, jeans, sweatshirt with hood over t-shirt and then jacket.)
