Visit Park City and take a balloon ride, for an hour or more, there are several operators. You get a very different prospective on things from here....

From our balloon you could see the "ground pounders" who were victims of gravity. Take a look at another balloon that let out just a little too much air, he almost landed in someones living room.

Take a ride on the Reading (oops, thats in Monopoly), here it is the Union (hmmm, thats in Monopoly also, do we have a trend here.
But really this coal buring train runs on a track for several kilometers and you can get all the fun and enjoyment of visiting the past for a short time (including inhaling lots of burnt coal if the wind is right ).

    You have terrific pictures of my MOST favorite place in Utah - Park City - never saw it from a hot air balloon like you did - glad you posted these! I will have to try the balloon ride soon, but maybe also try to get out of the work detail at the end!

    A balloon ride is still on my list of 'must do's'. What a fabulous place to do it in and so lucky with the weather. What a wonderful experience and great photos.

    Wonderful photos of your balloon ride Martin! I went on a balloon flight once and I found it amazing! When the burners are off it is so amazingly silent floating through the air. I loved it!
