There are simply heaps of non-alpine mountains and hills around Wanaka that are ideal for a bit of a training hike and fly mission.  A few days ago we went for a wander up to the Saddle of Treble Cone and walked out towards End Peak.  As the day wore on and the winter sun set in the western sky we quickly realized that we needed to make a flight happen, we were running out of daylight and we still wanted to go rock climbing as well!

The actual flight was pretty kewl with Dugald running an amazing canyon / valley down to the waterfalls overlooking the TC paragliding landing area. 

 

Enjoy the flight – we enjoyed the walk!
