So my parents came out from Indiana last week for a few days to visit and we went looking for a new adventure. Our typical routine of hitting Pearl Street in downtown Boulder, hiking and shopping at McGuckin Hardware was getting a bit played out. So whilst we were enjoying a tasty breakfast at Le Peep, we watched skyward as gliders from Mile High Gliders in Boulder fluttered about in the cool morning air searching for thermals. My Dad and I looked at each other and instantly decided our next move. Gliding!
As a commercial pilot with more than a few thousand hours in the logbook, taking a glider ride is one of several things in aviation that I had yet to do. So the excitement was palpable and we were ready to go! Needless to say the experience was amazing and I very much look forward to gliding again soon. I didn't bring the camera along on the glider ride but did manage a few fun shots. I loved this shot of the tow plane about to go to work and tow my Dad & his instructor up, up and away.
