Make good use of those blue skies and fly away toward Ruch today for a glimpse of participants in the 34th annual Starthistle Fly-In at Woodrat Mountain.

Make good use of those blue skies and fly away toward Ruch today for a glimpse of participants in the 34th annual Starthistle Fly-In at Woodrat Mountain.

The Rogue Valley Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association event features three days of competition and camaraderie at the mountain southwest of Jacksonville.

Spectators often can see gliders throughout the day heading off the mountain from several vantage points on Highway 238.
