Comment

Interesting flight today, launching with 1A and BG. It was an easy run up the Santa Cruz Mountains, but I was soon constrained by the San Jose Class C. At Lexington Reservoir I gave Norcal Approach a call and negotiated passage through to the Reid Hillview side (easier said than done).

Once on the east side I found the lift a bit weaker, but decided to go north with Reid Hillview conveniently positioned just in case. That turned out to be a less than easy way to go (ratty clouds), so I backtracked and crossed Tiger Country at San Antonio Valley. On the east side there, the lift was strong and the cloud bases high. From there I pushed into the SJ Valley, but found the clouds weakening with the growing cloud shadows. Getting back on to the Diablos proved easy and I had a fast run a little past Hollister and then home.
