The Great Park Balloon Ride

The Great Park in Irvine, that they haven’t really started on and won’t be done for several years, has balloon rides and a visitor center. The balloon rides are free for the rest of the year, so we went down there this morning and took a ride. It takes you about 400 feet up into the air and you’re leashed to the ground, so it just stays in that spot for a few minutes and then you go back down. Great view of Orange County, and if the visibility were better, we would have been able to see the ocean.

    So, is it an orange because it’s orange county? or is that a silly question?

    You know, that didn’t even occur to me until I was looking through the pictures. I guess it was just a matter of time before Orange County had a giant orange hovering over it. It seems like it should have been there all along.
