In any case, the parasailor sits in a harness, rather unlike a hang glider whose body lies prone in a harness. The parasail seems to be maneuvered by pulling the lines that attach it to the harness. The parasailors flew all along the cater rim beside Mitzpe Ramon, slowly descending then catching a new thermal that would tower them high over head, as they swooped around together. Looks exciting, but I don't think you'll catch me up there any time soon. There were some very interesting cloud formations on Friday, as you will see in these photos, that I can't explain. Enjoy the colorful sights from the ground.
