We spotted this Parasailer from the window of our cable car on our way up the highest vertical ascent in the world,to the Aguille du Midi in Chamonix, France. He floated above the seemingly endless clouds, and past massive, colorful peaks, all part of the Aiguilles Rouge range of mountains. We were in awe, and felt like this was a breathtaking example of God's creation!

Location: Chamonix-Mont Blanc, France
