Look Out Below

Look Out Below

400 feet up in the air in a balloon that’s tethered to the ground. On a clear day, you can see  Catalina Island and up along the coast.

This is the Great Park Balloon in the Orange County Great Park.

While being secured to the ground with the tether may lessen the riskiness of the ride, that didn’t make it any less of an adventure for Zella. Her emotions ranged from sheer elation to arm-shaking fright. At times she was silent and frozen, and then she would transition to non-stop oohing and aahing and gazing out across the ground below.

Getting on the balloon ride was a huge leap of faith for Zella.

Next: Spitting from the edge of the ride.
