Lily C. (Wife/greatest crew lady ever)
Lily is my supportive wife who helps me do what I love. When she is not delivering babies as a midwife, she can often be convinced to wake up at 4am to come chase the balloon.
I can't imagine a better way to see the beauty of the Pacific NW! This should be a "must try" for anyone with visiting out-of-town guests who really want to see how pretty it is here. A truly peaceful and breathtaking experience.
Great experience, loved every second of it! I got some great photos out of it too.
