Awesome late summer day. Day was a bit late to develop and required a deep mountain tow past Thorodin Mtn. but once in lift conditions were great. A lot of smoke on the Front Range from the Cameron Peak fire but once I got past Mt Evans the usual100+ mile visibility was restored. Great lift, well marked, and practically all clouds worked. My flight path looks a bit erratic as I was following the line of clouds south and then across to the west. Jumped into the Sawatch Range and flew over a bunch of 14ers including the Collegiate Peaks. Made the following dozen: Mt. Elbert, La Plata Peak, Huron Peak, Missouri Mountain, Mt. Belford, Mt Harvard, Mt Columbia, Mt Yale, Mt Princeton, Mt Antero, Tabeguanache Peak, and Mt. Shavano. Missed Mt Oxford (by a tiny margin) as well as Mt. Massive and Mt of the Holy Cross. Above the Collegiates there was lift almost everywhere so you basically just had to fly from one peak to the next. Fun! And actually much easier than in Condor, haha, shows what an exceptional day this was! Some virga developed over South Park and I decided to head back to Boulder before I might get into trouble. But I'm sure it would have worked for another hour for sure. Once back on the Front Range, lots of smoke again. Quite sad. What a privilege to be able to fly in western Colorado.
