a visual journey
Follow along with us as adventurers take to the skies for the first time on a tandem, learn valuable paragliding skills or even catch a glimpse of pilots just goofing around!
As I talk to more members of the local community, it's great to hear them ask questions and gain a better understanding of paragliding and hang gliding. One thing they seem surprised about is the limit of winds we can fly in. Yesterday looked stunning - the clouds lifted enough to clear launch by late afternoon - but the winds were far too strong. Looking over from the Mount Thomm trailhead a small part of me wondered if I should risk driving over to check out launch rather than go for a hike, but watching the clouds zoom by overhead told me I'd made the right decision, no matter how tempting it looked across the valley!
