leap in to heaven

What this looks like is nothing like what it feels like. What goes through your head is nothing like what you'd expect. And there's no way to explain it other than doing it. Have no fear, there's nothing to worry about.

If you ever have the opportunity, jump at it.

This is my first of many hang gliding trips on 2/19/2006. Read journal entry re: hang gliding.

I noticed off in the distance an example of what looks like mountaintop mining. When they literaly blow the top off of a mountain to get at thin strips of coal. I never would have noticed the flat mountaintop had it not been for this month's national geographic which has a big article on this topic. Such a sad thing. Very uplifting image otherwise.

that's cool i took a look; maybe that's what they were doing! I definitely noticed that mountaintop......

It's such a brute force method and so sad. Skim the top of a mountain and fill a valley. Use less than 1% of the earth you move. Insanity at its finest. A link to national geographic's photos on the topic: [link] incase you're interested.
