Phil & Leigh Take A Balloon Flight

 We took our balllon flight with Vista Balloon Adventures, of Sherwood,
Oreegon in Newberg, Oregon on June 30, 2004. Vista requires that you be at the
airport at 5:30 am. Every step of the flight is handled with care.To make the flight
more interesting, passengers help the crew prepare the balloon for flight,
and roll up the ballon at the conclusion of the flight. A champagne brunch follows
the flight, with champagne, brie, marionberry cobbler, watermelon and other delights.
We recommend Vista Balloon Adventures.
