These Guys Paraglide to Their Campsites

Four paragliders show off the fringe sport of fly camping, also called vol bivouac, in this short from Cloudbase Collective. Ride thermals along with the pilots at 18,000 feet as they attempt to make their way from Hurricane Ridge, Utah, to Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic's mission of inspiring people to care about the planet. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of the National Geographic Society.
