The Shawanga Legend – The Ranch, Upstate NY

Monday, June 26, 2017

As legend goes, there was a native tribe that lived in these mountains. This tribe had a princess who, to the detriment of her tribe, falls in love with an outsider. What a scandal!

Being as they were mountain dwellers, their answer to the problem was to throw him off a cliff. Before he is given the old heave-ho, the princess secretly tells him that if he yells her name as he is thrown into the air, she will rescue him with magic…

It is unknown as to wether or not he survived, but a tradition is upheld at the local skydiving tribe to yell her name in the hopes that on takeoff she will help their aircraft clear the trees at the end of their very short runway.
