We started down here with a plan to drive up the mountains you see reflected in the lake, on an unpaved forest service road, to an infamous hang-gliding drop-off point, on Mount 7 in Golden, Canada.
Views above the tree line on the way up.
The drive up took a couple hours.
Finally reached the summit. Quite a view, even on a cloudy day.
Informative map showing wind directions and where not to land i.e., “Don’t land in the Canadian Pacific switching station.” No s@#% Sherlock! (Click to enlarge and read map).
Memorial to two hang gliders who didn’t make it.
Just a few steps to the drop. Gave me the heebie-jeebies to just walk out on the platform!
It’s a very long way down!
