Hang Gliding

1500 Feet Up - July 21, 2009
High Perspective is a company near Pickering, Ontario, just east of Toronto that offers tandem hang glides. Since I had never tried hang gliding before, I thought I'd give it a go. What an amazing experience, gliding with the wind, well over a thousand feet up. If you've ever wanted to experience what it's like to soar like a bird, then I suggest giving this a try.
 
The glider was towed up using a special winch and after a few maneuvers to gain altitude, we disconnected the cable and away we went.

The thermals coming off the road caused some turbulence when we passed over it.
