After last week's winter storm that brought about a foot of snow, great fall soaring is back. Struggled for a while to connect today - by my late launch time the convergence had moved to the west side of the divide - but after getting to know the terrain around Eldora up close I managed to get up and on my way. Detoured around a TFR and flew over Breckenridge to the west. Spotted a viable opportunity to get to Mount of the Holy Cross - my last outstanding 14er in the Sawatch Range, and got it! Whew! Fairly intimidating terrain in this area but I kept at least Kremmling, Leadville or Eagle in glide the whole time. (I know, the Kremmling airport is actually closed.) Backtracked towards Gray's and Torrey's and then identified a line to the southeast to turn my flight into a nice triangle. Very nice cruising in the late afternoon sun. The mountains looked spectacular today, great visibiliy (after the snow dampened the fires), white peaks all across the state, sunlight glistening off the waves in Dillon Reservoir. Beautiful! Flew without water for the first time in months but the Ventus runs well even without. Very nice!
