Scraping the floor early fall cross country. Significantly worse conditions than last weekend after a very strong cold front pushed through on Tuesday. Very hazy with somewhat muted sunlight. Mild winds. A few thermals that went up to about 11k, but almost the entire flight was below 10k, putting on the cannula turned out to be pretty pointless. Not terribly strong with the strongest climbs below 3 knots and some that weren't even a knot. Some clouds off in the distance, but not anywhere I reached.
Had a decent climb off of tow and reached 11k reasonably rapidly before setting off S. Got a bit past Estancia when I started getting low and backtracked to keep Estancia airport in my back pocket if I needed it for a landout but found a decent climb shortly after so resumed going S. I rounded Mountainair airport and headed back N. Again I got a bit N of Estancia before backtracking back S to keep Estancia airport within a comfortable glide which almost proved necessary. I got down to 700' AGL with landing gear deployed before I found a strong, even climb right before the turn to base that saved me from a landout and took me from 6800' to 9700'. I got back to Moriarty and kept going N. I was toying with going to Zorro Ranch and back but decided against it this late on a marginal day so rounded Stanley and Sandia Airpark before returning home right before 17:00 to call it a day.
