Bishop California sits in the middle of the Owens Valley and has been home to Kari Castle for the last 29 years. The “Owens” is not only the deepest valley in the US it has some of the deepest roots in both Hang gliding and Paragliding History. The first ever 100 mile cross country flight in a hang glider was set in the late 70’s. Kari made history in July, 1991 when she set her second World Record, by being the first female hang glider pilot to fly over 200 miles. This flight originated in the southern end of the Owens Valley and ended 8.5 hours later, 208 miles straight line distance to land in the Dixie Valley in another state! She landed Nevada happy and tired.
