Learning to Fly #2 



Finally!

This area is known for its aviation history, since the Wright Brothers flew there.

In addition to the fundamentals of hang gliding, I also learned about the Rogallos, who created the flexible wing, and some of NASA's contributions to the sport, which isn't all that surprising, but I wasn't aware of it.

The waves of dunes are kind of like their own world, especially at summer dusk and dawn, when the temperature's comfortable and everyone's voices are muted by the breeze, and their steps are muted by the sands. The soundscape matched with the visuals almost doesn't feel real. I regret not having had better video equipment on hand.
