Soaring above Oregon farmland

Last weekend I had the pleasure of going on my first hot air balloon ride with the awesome Vista Balloon Adventures. I surprised Gemma with a ride for her birthday and we both had a great time. The day started off very early so we could get up into the air soon after the sunrise. It was definitely worth the early morning for such a unique experience! We went up with another balloon which provided plenty of great photo opportunities along with the fog.
