[media-credit name=”Jeff Pisciatta” align=”alignleft” width=”300″][/media-credit]I just love sight-seeing in the gorgeous Carson Valley but it seems like I never have enough time to see it all. Fortunately, I discovered a most serene way to take it all in with a bird’s- eye view from above. Whit Landvater of  Balloon Nevada flies his beautiful rainbow colored balloon over this majestic area each morning, soon after sunrise, with two lucky passengers.  Available by appointment only, an exhilarating  ride lasts at least an hour, floating peacefully over pristine landscapes as the world below awakens. Balloon Nevada also provides wedding services performed by friendly pilot/ owner Whit Landvater, an ordained minister.  What an intimate way to exchange vows, just the two of you and perhaps one guest drifting high above the valley floor. This is no everyday adventure and the Balloon Nevada crew will see to it that your unique experience is all that you dreamed it would be.  Balloon rides are available year ’round, weather permitting, for $240/person(3rd for $225) and a daily schedule can be viewed on the Balloon Nevada website at Reservations can be made online or by giving Whit a call at 775-790-7572. Give Balloon Nevada a call and get a little air!
