October 2 2022 — October 7 2022 Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta & Enchanting Santa Fe ~~ Oregon West
Up, up, and away the balloons go into the New Mexico sky each October. Few spectacles on Earth rival the Mass Ascension, as hundreds of balloons lift off from Balloon Fiesta Park to drift in the crisp early-morning high-desert air. This memorable tour also features an evening balloon glow with fireworks, visits to Santa Fe, Taos, Anasazi ruins and the culture and history of the Land of Enchantment.
October 5 2022—October 7 2022 Portland Spirit to Astoria ~~ Oregon West
Astoria is gritty and likes it that way. But that rustic exterior is just a cover for the many enchanting dichotomies you’ll find waiting around the corner. Here, fisherman are poets, loggers drink espresso, and Main Street welcomes both the nouveau gallery and the five n’ dime. For Astoria, it’s about character, and it’s also about characters: the people who call this place home with a passion that borders on evangelical. The skipper who challenges the same mighty river his great grandfather once fished; the artist who migrated here in search of a new palette; the hotelier who resurrected a once-bustling pier. Filling fast! See Flyer
