This is truly a most beautiful video.  This HUDSON RIVER BIRDER "attempted" paragliding about ten years ago in Nevada with a good friend.  It was near Wells NV where my good friend and Redemptorist confrere, Fr. Brian Kennedy, was working with migrant peoples and local hispanics.  Unfortunately, after not being able to coordinate our "take off" and with two or three bruises, I finally let Brian go up alone which he did quite well.  However, since it was, as are the paragliders in this video, TWO PERSON PARAGLIDERS, Brian, being so light, could not get down for about two hours and 20 miles down the ridge.  I would so, so much liked to have an experience like these two men.
