Fantasy Balloon Flights offers hot air balloon rides across the Coachella Valley, with sweeping views of lush golf courses, resorts, neighborhoods and desert landscapes, all surrounded by mountains. Above: balloons preparing for flight.
Ready for take-off.
Our fellow fliers.
An unsuspecting swimmer.
Mount San Gorgonio in the distance.
Scoping out the golf courses and planning the next outing.

We survived, and we celebrate!
