Art had his first ever ride in a hot air balloon. I opted to sleep in so I missed out. He said that the most interesting thing about the ride was the silence. Except for the hiss of the propane, everything else was quiet. Here are some of the photos he took during his ride.

The balloon ride was an interesting experience. It was really difficult to determine how fast (or slow) we were going. I could not determine if another balloon was descending or whether we were ascending! It was a really a smooth, quiet ride. I highly recommend taking one if the opportunity is there.
