My name is Chris Reynolds, 52 years old, born and raised in Kodiak, Alaska until 7th grade 1972/73, when I moved to Anchorage to finish at Dimond High School. Now I live in the Mat-Su Valley at Big Lake, about an hour's drive from Anchorage.
Paramotoring over Eklutna Lake and Twin Peaks near Anchorage, Alaska – the golden fall scenery is amazing in September.
In mid September, three pilots fly paramotors (powered paragliders) from Bodenburg Butte, near Anchorage Alaska, to the Knik Glacier by way of the Knik River Valley.
With the flooded river valley and fall colors along the way to the glacier it makes for a “Flight of Fantasy”.
Chris Reynolds has spent most of his life chasing the ever elusive “hang time,” sports like snowboarding provide. Recently, he found a new love and a new adrenaline high: Paramotoring.
In this new video, Reynolds shows us what Alaska mountaintops look like during the summer months.
I have been an outdoor sportsman all my life… archery, fly fishing, snow machine, dirt bike, jet ski, skiing, snow boarding, wake boarding to name a few.
Now I find it hard to do any other sport, except flying paragliders, weather motor flying or free flying. I tell everyone the same thing….”You have not lived until you have flown” and I don’t mean sitting in a plane, but rather being the plane.
