I have a fascination with heights...as my friends will well attest. I love climbing up rocks, hiking up mountains, flying in planes, etc. and find any opportunity to do so. For some reason, I have no problem being up high in the air...I would, in fact, rather be a mile up in the sky than a few feet under water. (I'm one of the few people that even struggles with snorkeling-I will do it, but I don't enjoy it).
My friend Kasey and I have been talking about doing a hot air balloon ride for a long time. It just so happens to be on both of our bucket lists. This fall, I made sure it happened. What an experience. I LOVED every minute of it.
It was the most beautiful weather. The leaves were bright and colorful. The air was crisp. The balloon just floated peacefully along. There were friends, pictures, laughter and lots and lots of open blue sky. Heaven!
