Says Steven 'Scrappy' Beach, "We call the ravens and other birds that mingle with us 'locals' and say that when the 'locals' fly, so must we."
I ventured on top of Tater Hill this afternoon to watch human men and women fling themselves off the side of a mountain wearing nothing more than strings attached to mega yards of see-thru material. Then I watched as they rode thermals above Cove Creek, Mabel and Zionville...
I am trying to make a photo album this evening, but Typepad is being a turtle...so if not tonight, then tomorrow, for sure. Sitting on top of Tater Hill (approx 5000 ft) clinging to boulders, I felt local...if'n you ever get the chance...I recommend the experience, y'all.
You can read all about the sport at Paraglider Magazine. Hopefully they are covering the Tater Hill competition.
**Update** I added a little photo album of yesterday's trek up Tater Hill. Enjoy the view! For results and much more information about the Tater Hill Paragliding Competition, please visit Fly Tater Hill .
