Parachuter from the North Franklin Mountain

Living near the North Franklin Mountain of El Paso has been an excitement for us. Last weekend, we saw two skydivers parachuting and gracefully landing at the bottom of the mountain.

We were having our afternoon tea and enjoying the mountain-view. We noticed a bird, which in a few minutes appeared to be a parachute. I quickly got a camera, which is nothing extraordinary but my cell phone (iPhone 6). Later we noticed that there was a second diver who came down from the right side of the mountain. We were not able to capture images of the second diver.

We do not know if they were skydiving or parachuting from the peak of the mountain. Either way, seeing them fly was exciting enough for us. We can only imagine how much exciting it was for the divers. 🙂 This post contains some of the pictures we took.

  3. Nice pictures you captured. I must say living in such a place must be fun! I might come around to have a holiday over there.
  4. Right time and at the right place. Is that a regular thing in North Franklin Mountain? Anyway I am not into extreme adventure. I love to watch them but not into really trying them. I guess you must have the courage and desire to really be involve in such a sport. Thanks for sharing!
  5. I live in a valley. There are hills around. In the recent times, some private companies are exploring the possibilities of paragliding from one of the hills towards the north. In the last six months, two parashooter have landed few miles away from my house. I have never tried paragliding or parashooting. I have listed these activities in my bucket list.
