Paragliding off Mount Woodside

Setting Sail
The Chilliwack* area is well known for its hiking, white water rafting, wilderness camping, fishing and boating outdoor activities.

Lately, recreation has been taking to the skies and I was fortunate enough to capture a few pictures recently of some of the wonderful paragliding off Mount Woodside in the nearby District of Kent.

Leaving Earth

Soaring with the Wind and Sun















This is a sport with significant risks as noted in a previous article and reported by the newspapers of the recent tragic death of Lenami Godinez-Avila; training and diligence is required. 

Still, the Mount Woodside launch area was very busy, despite these concerns, when I recently took these photographs.

One of many advantages of residing in this fabulous part of the Fraser Valley is access to its rugged beauty.
