Point of the Mountain

This is interesting. The Soar Utah RC slope contest takes place at this location. I learned to hang glide on Point of the Mountain. http://abcnews.go.com/Nightline/video/turf-war-gliders-gravel-miners-20479602

Thermals---I need thermals!

Jim,I don't believe you. When you would have been young enough to hang-glide,there were no hang-gliders. People were still attempting to fly with chicken feathers held together with melted wax.

Soar Utah is a cool event. Even though the recreation does bring some tourist money, the lure of money from the mining, and private property rights, will make it a tough battle for the relatively small number of recreation users.

Jim, I know you know im just kidding with you. Im the one with the gray hair, you still look like a teenager. That was an interesting post and I enjoyed it. Will be interesting to see where it all winds-up,but probably Merlin hit the nail on the head.
