THE Shenandoah Valley, Blue Ridge Mountains and Thomas Jefferson’s architecture are three great icons of America’s heritage. Seeing these by air while silently drifting in hot-air balloon at sunrise is a visual delight and an unforgettable privilege. Rick Behr is your ever-so-friendly pilot and is highly qualified. In the early 70’s he introduced the financial publishing magnate Malcolm Forbes to ballooning and soon thereafter began the balloon business in the Loire Valley with Buddy Bombard.

Take-off is from the lovely Boar’s Head Inn, a wonderful base from which to explore this region further by car. This experience can be enjoyed spring, summer or fall! or call me (212) 861-6961 for an introduction to Rick.
