Paragliding on Mt. Hood, May 2002

Steve Forslund, John Wenning, and I took advantage of favorable conditions on Mt. Hood on May 12 to do a paragliding descent from the top of the Palmer snowfield. Our flight path was down the White River Canyon, landing at the White River snowpark. Our good fortune was not yet over for at the snowpark we met vacationers Shae and Raffaella who gave us a ride back up to our vehicle at Timberline Lodge and joined in our après paragliding celebration.
