I spent my vacations in the Dolomiti mountains in the north of Italy, UNESCO's world heritage, an enchanted place to see, and obviously I brought along my kites Grin
Wind on the mountains isn't so fine as on the beach, too gusty and variable, but flying in such places is too wonderful and amazing to resist, so I wish to share my fun.

Great pics.  Where is the Eclipse though?

Spent a weekend at Aviano AB with a broke C5 and my road bike a few years ago.  Road from the base to a ski resort at the top of the mountain.  Stunning views!

Thanks Jerry, yes the Dolomiti are stunning mountains.
I guess you do refer to my last post (6 lines), so the Eclipses are flying in a field close to home and to the sea, where I live. Flying on the beach during summer is almost impossible, too much people and tourists: no room to fly. Only in some days when weather isn't fine and wind is low you can fly on the beach with short lines and a SUL only just because there is less people.

Very inspiring - a man, a kite, beautiful mountains.  Seems like a place to spend some quality time and certainly my idea of a great vacation.  Smiley

Truly an inspirational setting for kite flying.

I wanted to play "The hills are alive, with the sound of music." while I looked at the pictures.

Thanks for sharing.  Smiley
