Last weekend my wife and I crossed another item off of our collective bucket list… we took a Glider ride through the beautiful mountains of Vermont; which just happened to be in full Fall foliage splendor! It was definitely the ride of a lifetime…
Last year I was lucky enough to win a glider ride for two from Stowe Soaring, based out of the Stowe-Morrisville airport. The trip that I won was for a 25-minute ride around the Mount Eden/Worcester Mountain region of Vermont. However, when it actually came time to make the flight, we decided that this could be a once-in-a-lifetime trip and we decided to upgrade to their top-of-the-line “Mile High” trip around Mount Mansfield, Vermont’s highest peak.
Needless to say, we were *NOT* disappointed…. as you can readily see from the pictures of our flight below.
What a perfect way to cap off a nearly life-long stay as Vermont residents and celebrate our pending move to Tennessee in a few weeks!
