Alpine Paragliding

I have never "got" paragliding before. The thought of jumping off a mountain attached to a sheet and hoping to go upwards seemed a little strange.


Having arrived at the top of the mountain and watched a few people setting up, I watched the graceful gliding into the stunning backdrop, I finally realised why someone would do paragliding. To be part of such a scene, silently moving though the sky must be amazing.


In case of curiosity, I did not partake as there were not enough sheets available to carry the weight.
