First time "really" across the Divide. 6th attempt to fly a pre-declared 500k and this time it worked :-) Very nice day - only issue was relatively low cloud bases - hesitated for a long time in middling lift on the west side of Evans. Had mentally almost given up and flew back to the Front Range. Then a nice looking street opened up further north and I made the jump to the west. Conditions on the other side were mixed. Some clouds worked, some didn't. Some produced great lift, others were mediocre. Only on my return were there great looking clouds that I knew would produce big time - and they did. My western TP was Toponas and rounding it required a jump into the blue. But I kept the airport in Kremmling in glide the whole time. Getting back up to the divide from the west was a non event. Then big sink on the east in the lee until I connected with a convergence line. This was a godsend so late in the day as it perfectly aligned with my 3rd TP and it got me to the finish point in good time before the day ended. Beautiful late afternoon sun as I was heading back to Boulder. My longest flight so far.
