        Another 2012 solo hike and fly morning. The 3,000 ft of uphill switchbacks was brutal but at least I didn't need to hike back down. Love this wing. Song is "Gold on the Ceiling" by the Black Keys,…

          I got up early for this mountain and enjoyed hiking Campbell Peak's meadows and ridgeline with elk in the sunrise. I started early because it is such a big mountain, but it turned out to be a moderate…

              This was a memorable day hike recently. I'm enjoying my Little Cloud 16m, it's been ideal for Hike-n-fly days in the San Juans, perfect because it's about 20 lbs with a reserve. Hiking up Ingram…

                  This flight was a celebration of great colorful Aspen trees in Colorado's San Juan mountains. It was a pleasure to drive up a 4WD road to treeline in Ophir, a tiny valley town near Telluride. Jeff…

                      I foot-launched my Nano 14m speedwing on 10-29-10 from the summit of Ingram Pk (12,552ft). It was awesome! A pulse of tailwind on approach made the landing rather sporty.
