Rocky Mountain High

I haven't been there for years, but I still have a love for it.  I used to like to go up in the mountains to watch the hangglidders or paraglidders.  I thought maybe one day I'd try hangglidding.  But alas, now I feel old and not physically fit enough.

Anybody out there hangglide or paraglide up in the Rocky's?  If you do, I admire you!  I wish I would have tried it back then.  If you have a dream, better go for it right away.  Time and circumstances can change.  You might later regret waiting.  Like me.

Colorado is beautiful, amazing scenery, and I can see how it would make you want to fly. I have to admit though, I don't think that I would ever have the courage to leap off the side of a mountain, even if people swore up and down that I wouldn't die. Maybe it's different once you feel like you would know what you were doing!
