Up, Up, and Away to Gladden Farms, Marana, AZ

One of my favorite songs from my childhood...

"The world's a nicer place in my beautiful balloon
It wears a nicer face in my beautiful balloon
We can sing a song and sail along the silver sky
For we can fly we can fly
Up, up and away"


I'm certain that's one of the reasons why Gladden Farms, Marana AZ feels like home to me. Gladden Farms is just north of Tucson along Interstate Hwy 1-10, heading west on Tangerine Farms road.

The hot air balloons have been dotting the morning skies of Marana this past month.  Since moving to Marana, I've seen as many as 6 in the sky at one time.  The following is a photo I snapped taking my daughter to school one day last week.

Tours are available for up to 8 people, and you can plan on a balloon adventure taking approximately 3.5 hours.  Here's some great photos of the adventure: Tucson and Marana hot air balloon rides.

To paraphrase the 5th Dimension ....

"The world's a nicer place ...

It wears a nicer face ..."

in lovely, rural Marana!

Cara, This was great! Better than great, this was PERFECT.  You have taught me something priceless, as I begin my efforts at Localism.  I SUGGESTED this post because it provided perfectly matched background music, for me to listen to, while focusing on a related picture and reading your article.  Plus, you did an EXCELLENT job in creating a word picture to describe me as floating in the air as I check out Gladden Farms.  Thank you for sharing and best wishes always.

Hi Richard.  THANKS!  I think if you love your area, it will shine through your posts in Localism.  I am so, so happy I moved SW to Tucson and Marana in 2000.  The laid back living, the sunshine, the mountains, the sunsets...
