Kites in Colorado
(Westminster, Colorado, USA)
Rocky Mountains and the Continental Divide
I enjoy the site very much, and we love the Dowel Barn Door! Hopefully, I will correctly post a couple of pics here and there. We live in a northwest suburb of Denver, Colorado.
I wanted to share the beautiful scenery we have every day at our flying spot. That's the Rocky Mountains and the Continental Divide in the background. Those mountains create some of craziest wind patterns in North America. Its always a challenge.
Here also, is a pic my granddaughter, Kayleigh, as we launch our "X-1 Dowel Barn Door". It was made from a $1.88 emergency blanket. It flew beautifully all of last summer.
I include a shot of Kayleigh just because she's so pretty! The line she's holding leads to an XKite Sky Diamond. They cost a buck and she has about 300 feet of line out, so all we can see is the line.
Soon we'll be flying the new X-2 Barn Door.
Thanks for being there.
As mentioned earlier, there's another alternative to towing indoor kites if it's just not possible to fly outdoors...
"Kites Up!" is my downloadable board game. It's a PDF file which has all the documentation for the game plus images for all the components. Tokens, cards, the board itself and so on. Anyway, just click that link to see more info :-)
