Prepping the Wing

A paraglider adjusts their wing on the ground on top of a mountain in Germany. A blue sky above and mountains in the distance.

One of the days during a team meetup in Germany recently was spent hiking across a mountain, up and down steep snow-covered hills. On the way, we passed by what is evidentially the launch site for people paragliding.

They would fling themselves off this slope and soar for I don’t know how long, catching thermals and circling far overhead.

Not for me, but the wings were very colourful!
