Here’s a quick video that shows what gliding high above the mountains looks like. Thoroughly dressed in cold weather gear, I was still forced to cut my flight short due to cold hands. I’ve since purchased better gloves and long to return to this amazing location in the Owens Valley.
I was invited here by my good friend Dave Turner. He is by far the best pilot in the area and it was a joy to fly with him. Follow him on his next journey, an epic 520 mile (835km) route that will take him from sea level in Santa Barbara, up through the coastal mountains, out to the dry desert peaks of the Mojave, and up to the cool, high Sierra Nevada. http://sierraparagliding.com/sierra-solo-vol-biv-2014/
