Mixed bag day. Forecasts were calling for cus further west by the Sierras so started going SW towards Stead. Near Stead I got kinda low and took me a while to get high enough to keep going. I cut over from west to east by Washoe Lake and flew under decent clouds by Wellington. North of Mono Lake there was very good lift but also very bad sink at times. Right over Mono Lake had some scraggily cus and I started high enough so decided to go all the way, cross Mono Lake and turn Lee Vining. Ended up going home via Mt. Grant and Hawthorne as it was really blue further west. It gradually weakened up as I got back further north, so lowed down a bit and just tried to stay high. I got nice and high for a 75 mile final glide home with some headwind component and 50 miles or so of blue in my way and made it back without too much problem.
