This is a new section of our site. Here you will find the pilots comments about each flight during the 2008 season. Flying hot air balloons in Northern California’s Gold Country is not the same thing as flying hot air balloons in Napa Valley. We hope this section provides people with a combination of amusement and awe. Wine Country flying is nice but we prefer the challenge of mountain flying. The American River Valley and Coloma provides spectacular scenery as well as interesting flying. No big flat fields for us! Landing here is often on a river bank or in between trees. We hope you enjoy reading this section. Feel free to post your comments!
