Sauk Mountain Trail
A group of paraglider pilots hike the Sauk Mountain trail on a
clear October day. This hike is short, but many alpine flights
in the Northwest require several miles and thousands of vertical
feet of climbing. At the end of a long hike, a mountain pilot
never knows if the conditions will be flyable. If the wind isn't
right, you have to be prepared to pack it up and walk back down.
