A few days ago we got a call from Mark Selner telling us to look up and see a couple paragliders (one red, one blue) playing in the sky above us, here in the Hesperia/Victorville area of the high desert. Looked like they were having fun. I’d guess they were 4000-5000 feet overhead AGL. Maybe above Main Street Hesperia or Bear Valley Road – pretty small and hard to see. Reminded me of a similar sighting a couple years ago, where two paragliders seemed headed out toward Barstow.
You spotted a pair of Santa Barbara pilots–Neal & Michael who launched from Blackhawk and were headed West. There was also one HG–Willy from SB as well.
Can I hit you up for a high desert drive and chase some time?
