High Hopes Balloon, Onondaga County
  62 Devonshire Circle - Penfield, NY              
These are typical reactions first-time balloonists have after floating on air. Ballooning is unlike anything else you've ever done. You'll have a 360-degree panoramic view of the countryside from your stable perch. Because you are moving with the wind, you won't feel it - regardless of how strong it may be. If you were to close your eyes, you'd think you were in your kitchen. But keep your eyes wide open! And perhaps you'll see deer or other animals scurrying in the woods. Or awed spectators gazing up while waving a friendly hello. Or you'll pick a leaf or pine cone from the top of a tree. Or all of those experiences - and many more!
