Flyin' man Harry Simmons, a former Calhoun resident said "You really understand that we live in the backwoods, sometimes as far as the eye can see, only woods, hills and hollers. It sure offers a different view."
Simmons, who was flying his powered parachute, photographed Calhoun from the air, and offered several different views of Grantsville.
