here is one more photo taken on my paraglider flight from telluride to silverton. this was my biggest flight to date and a surreal experience. two other pilots and i were surfing the clouds hopping from thermal to thermal at around 16,000 feet. some of the climbs were as strong as 20 feet per second of elevation gain! it still blows my mind that you can fly a piece of fabric using only the power of the sun to accomplish feats like this. if you look really hard you can find those other two pilots in the photo flying towards the whiminuche wilderness. they went on to fly across the range and land near lake city. me? i felt good about putting my feet back on the ground steps from my home. i'm still buzzing from this flight and can't wait to get back up there. #paraglidng#silverton #telluride #colorado #sanjuans #freeflight #visitsilverton #visitcolorado #visittelluride #whiminuche @ozoneparagliders
