High Cirrus on the SE half of hte Mojave desert so wasn't expecting much. But, lift was there and some Cu formed over the San Gabriel mountains which enabled easy flying up to cloudbase around 12,500 MSL from Mt Baldy to the Antelope Valley Freeway. Lots of airliners cutting across the mountains both into and out of LA. Hoping/expecting my TT22 Mode S was doing its job. Most showed up on the Flarm display in a useful form and were generally several thousand feet above me. Took a jaunt out into the desert after the cloud cover increased due to the coming monsoon and shut down the mountains. I found that out near the Edwards MOA and restricted zone the lift was still working. Found an unmarked boomer in the middle of nowhere and started circling up. As passed through 11kft all of a sudden a red ring appeared on my LX display indicating a transponder aircraft within less than about 1/2 mile and at my altitude. As I was in a tight circle I opted to keep turning hoping to see something. Sure enough as I turned to the East a Delta Express regional jet was headed right at me. I continued the (right)turn and leveled out perpendicular to our path and he also banked hard right (joyride for those passengers). We cleared by several hundred yards. But that was clearly the closest encounter I've had. Otherwise an interesting day with good lift lots of cloud cover and a mix of lift sources.
