Paragliders in the sky

Yesterday was the first day in about 2 weeks without  rain in the 24 hours.  So, I went out for a walk, as so did a lot of other people!  But what really caught my attention were two paragliders soaring high over Monte Velo, the mountain that sits behind my house.  Here we’re looking at them though from Arco, about 2 kilometers from where I live.

    • In the summer we see them from time to time. This is a particularly nice area for spotsmen….and paragliding is one of those summer sports that tourists practice here along with freeclimbing, wind-surfing and the like. Locally there’s a paraglider club in Rovereto. It’d be cool if you decided to make a visit!
