Have you ever seen Steamboat Springs from a hang glider?

Vimeo user John Wilber posted this video and it's dazzling. Plenty of folks flock to Colorado to see the turning of the leaves, but this is a whole new perspective. John has other flights posted online including a flight over Williams Peak.

Definitely do yourself a favor and click HD and then full screen on this one. The extra bonus is the soundtrack, that's Taj Mahal's "Lovin' In My Baby's Eyes."

H/T to the Steamboat Pilot & Today on Twitter for pointing this one out to us.

I’m not a Colorado native (did you know that "I'm from Missouri" means "I'm skeptical of the matter and not easily convinced?") but I have lived here for most of my life and couldn't imagine leaving. After graduating from Colorado State University, I did what everyone wants to do; I moved to the mountains and skied, hiked, and hid from responsibility! Our listeners in the mountains may know me from my time in Steamboat Springs and Vail or as the voice of the Battle Mountain Huskies Hockey team in Vail.
