Engineer Mountain vertical view
This is a view from looking straight down from a glider at 16,000' flying over Engineer Mountain. The massive rock glacier on the north side (right)shows up quite vividly from this viewpoint. The top of the photo is west.

Voted 10/10

of the guy that won the Darwin award for launching to 16000' in his lawn chair with army surplus balloons filled with helium. He had a BB gun to shoot one balloon at a time to come down but didn't have any idea he would go that high. He really got into trouble when he drifted over restricted air space. I don't remember where I ever read this story or if it's actually true but it sure is funny to think about.

y Ventus glider is much more comfortable, and safer, than an aerial lawn chair, and no bb gun needed. Plus, I can pretty much fly where I want (flew over 400 miles that day, and getting aerial shots of San Juan mountains was on my agenda for the flight).
