The Sequatchie Valley is a popular destination for all kinds of less traditional air travel. Whether aircraft gliders or hang gliders, the valley just makes a perfect environment. One of our neighbors also enjoys the path less traveled to climb skyward as a hot air balloon enthusiast.

Be sure and pick up the March 14 Jasper Journal to get the full story of Eric Burhan’s journey to the bottom of the world, which is unique enough, and then found the opportunity to fly his single man hot air balloon while he was down there.
