Last fall we went paragliding!! It was so fun, turns out we're kind of into extreme sports (remember when we went sky diving?), just as long as we have a trained professional hooked to our backs and we can go along for the ride. We 'jumped' off Ki-Be here in Washington, which is only about 20 minutes from our house. We were able to do this because we had won it a a charity auction, and it was well worth it. The first couple pictures are of me. The first being a view of Benton City behind me.
My ride wasn't too long because we didn't catch any good air. As we were coming down to land we did catch one last little bit of air that pulled us higher for our landing than we expected, so it wasn't the smoothest landing but thankfully my only wound was a sore toe that got stepped on.
Cameron went after me and had a little longer ride. I even got the take-off recorded so you can see how you get in the air.
We would definitely recommend this as a fun thing to try for those who haven't!
