Flying...

These are all the photos I took while we were in the glider! It was such a cool experience. There is no engine, so all you hear is the wind on the wings. It's really like you're flying. In between thermals, you would move downward, then when you hit the next one it would go back up toward the sky! It was totally like a roller coaster. The pilot was really cool, too. He's been flying gliders for 30 years and even races them in Phoenix in the winter! Since gliders don't have engines, we were towed up by a Cessna. It was pretty sweet!

It was so amazing! I was so enthralled, there was no time or room in my heart to be afraid.
