It was not possible to turn down the opportunity to paraglide in my own backyard. Having never done it before and a highly experienced pilot willing to tandem me with my camera, was a recipe for ADVENTURE.
May 11 ( Mother’s Day), finally had the perfect weather to fly off the summit of Mt Bachelor.
Steve Roti, creator of Desert Air Riders, educated me on our chairlift rides and hike to the summit. I am not sure why, but I actually had no fear rising in me before or during our flight. It was by far one of the most amazing things I have done. I would describe it as soaring like a bird, while in a 360 IMAX movie.
Here is a little insight to what my camera and I saw up there.
I can’t wait to do this again. Next time I will even change a lens in-flight.
