Comment

Varied day that overall was better than expected. Almost entirely blue with the exception of sparse cus by Mt. Patterson that were at least at 19k. Winds varying from 5-10 knots SW to 20+ knots S up high. First thermal was a bit weak but after that the run down the Virginia Range was pretty good. Got a bit low by Rawe Peak but got back up higher easily enough. First leg going S wasn't terribly high at 12k-13k or lower but once I got to Mt Patterson the airmass completely changed and then there was lift everywhere and the thermals went up to 16k-18k and it was pretty damn good actually. I turned Lee Vining and it was still good up until a bit N of Gimmey's Bowl. After that I had a nice 20+ knot tailwind but there was unshakable lift and I lost over 7k of altitude until my next climb a bit NW of Yerrington. The rest of the flight was so so and kinda slow and lift didn't go over 12k and climbs at 3 knots at best. Made a final turn at State Line Peak and did a super fast final glide as the wonderwinds were kicking up and there was weak lift everywhere so had to do 120-130 knots to bring her down.
