Tonight, bought a 9A slider. Figured what the hell? Should be a blast.
How about some photos? Love to see that 14A!

Doug made it so easy to attach photos. One has to say, without photos, did it really happen/

Just joking.

Default Smoky flight

Northern California was full of smoke this weekend. I was planning to get away to Tahoe area and had to divert as I was beginning to lose sight of the ground during my climb. Over the day the smoke thickened. Be very careful as AWOS doesn't always see the haze.

Walking along South Lake this morning we could not see any peaks. I joked it was one day the boats on the lake that normally look goofy sporting a radar might just be useful. I feel bad for anyone that is here vacationing for the first time.

Pretty good breeze this evening cleared a lot out, from our perch on the east ridgeline we could see the sunset across the lake going down behind the western ridges. Still hazy, but much better.
