I have always envied hawks that I see floating in circles above a mountainside. I’ve wished I could soar on the breezes like that. Then I heard about paragliding and decided to try it as a way to celebrate my 60th birthday with my two children. We had a fabulous time with Steve Wilson, Jeff and John on a beautiful clear day at Tiger Mt. We had 40 minutes of dipping and rising on the invisible bubbles of rising air, one time literally joining a hawk riding a thermal upwards. I am not a person who likes rollercoasters and all those crazy amusement park rides, but I wasn’t the least bit scared by paragliding. Jeff provided my son with a few more acrobatic maneuvers, while Steve gave me a comfortable ride. His reassuring confidence and explanations of what we experienced made it a thoroughly enjoyable time from start to finish. Steve was also patient in working with us on scheduling an appointment, taking into consideration the weather predictions to optimize our experience. Also, I was glad we hiked to the top – it’s a lovely trail through tall evergreen forest.
