We flew in the balloon over the New Mexico countryside. It was a very calm day and although we had a fairly long ride it could have gone on much longer as far as I was concerned. It was beautiful and serene. The calm of the early morning was only broke by the rush of gas into the burner heating the air in the balloon. It is a great experience, never scary. Johnny is such a gracious host and a real pleasure to spend time with. The time on the ground was almost as good as the time in the air while visiting with Johnny and the crew. Early morning flight got us back by mid morning so that we could go to Santa Fe and a national park that day. I highly recommend this company and this pilot. You only live once and this should be on your bucket list.
