PhotoHunt Theme: High

The theme this week is "high" and I went on my first (and only) helicopter ride on the 1st of July, 2006. I found myself high up in the air over St. Louis! I am pretty much afraid of flying in any big commercial plane so this really was a huge event for me to fly in a helicopter.
~~~~~
By myself.

I had gone down to the Fair St. Louis and they were taking peo
ple up for helicopter rides so I nervously bought my ticket and actually went for a helicopter ride. As luck would have it, I even got to sit right next to the pilot in the front left seat of the helicopter.
I couldn't wait to show my husband the pictures of what I had done!

~~~~~
Had I not taken pictures,
no one would have believed that I would have done this!

~~~~~
Of course, St. Louis is home to Anheuser Busch so we did fly over the Budweiser building!

You can see the Arch in the background!

I called by to say thank you for your visit today and for taking the time to comment as well... it is always nice to see a new name pop up so thank you.

As for you High post... I think this is high enough for me.. I took such a trip many years ago and I have never forgot it, the way it lifted then turned.. out of this world.
