About 7 years ago, Darrell Anglen and his son, Nathan Anglen, got into paragliding together (Darrell considered it a nice, low impact alternative to spending long days with heavy packs pounding the trails in the Idaho backcountry). Not long after learning to fly Darrell was diagnosed with cancer and began prolonged, years-long treatment. The doctors said he probably wouldn't fly again. Not a duo to be told "you can't", Nate recently purchased a tandem paraglider. Last Friday I was lucky to be able to witness Darrell's first flight in 5 years. Thank you, Nate and Darrell, for your dogged determination to make the best of life even when circumstances look their bleakest. @n8_2you
