Peak Experience

Glider wing, Grand Teton's peak and Jackson Hole in the distanceI’m just back from a trip where I put my hiking boots on the terrain in three Western states and soared in the Grand Tetons.  With an instructor in the glider’s back seat giving flight advice and mountain orientation, I flew much of the two-hour flight, but the instructor had the stick when I took photos.  Never before have I flown with a mountain snow-scape on the other side of the canopy! This is Grand Teton and over its shoulder is Jackson Hole.
