Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge trip: Wonders of Flight

Up, up, and away... in a giant helium balloon.  Oh sure. That sounds like a great idea for someone terrified of heights!  But that's what the man of the house wanted to do, so I sucked it up and stepped on board Wonders of Flight: a 72 foot diameter helium balloon which takes riders 400 feet into the air.


Needless to say, I was more than a bit nervous as we began to rise into the air. 



But once we reached maximum altitude I was able to relax and enjoy the views






That's our shadow down there!
