What a wonderful early season day! Played leap frog with BB up the Sierras, then again on the return home from White Mountain.
Standard run up the Sierras working the nooks and crannies with lots of good thermals, but none going much above the crest. Crossed over to the Inyos at Lone Pine and did a little ridge soaring northbound before connecting with a convergence above the ridge north of Mt Inyo. Finally connected with clouds at Waucoba Mtn. and followed them along the east side of the Whites. Climbed to 17K or so NE of White Mtn, then went west to Glass Mtn. Hit wave right after leaving the cloud, but already almost to 18K, so couldn't do much there. Good clouds at Glass Mtn south to 395 where they fizzled out. So crossed back to the Whites and joined up with BB for a fun run home, until.... We got hammered with sink and headwind at Owens Lake. I managed to get a better climb at Haiwee that got me home. About 5 N of IYK, I hit a 6+ knot climb that allowed me to close the loop at my release point.
Secured the ship, grabbed some sandwiches and junk food for a nice picnic with BB on Cinder Cone dry lake.
