Comment

Started off good and made it to I-19 fields pretty easily. But then it got tougher as the NW wind picked up. Got to Rincon low again and worked it over the backside thinking Benson. But the turbulent churn on low backside kept working well enough to get north a bit and I got Cascabel Strip within glide. Once I got over the valley, lift got better but I didn't like the stronger wind and cut short of Bassett Peak. From there, I headed straight for La Cholla with a few mtns in the way. Worked ridge lift on both eastern and western ridges that extend off the north side of Lemmon. That got me to La Cholla where lift really started shutting down. Luckily it was buoyant and I got a few turns in light stuff to make the glide home. Was hoping to extend the triangle NW of El Tiro but the day and me were both done.
