Comment

A bit of a challenge, partially due to the late decision to fly today... Hooked up the trailer at 11:00am.
Looked like the marine air would prevail in the Tehachapi Valley so headed to California City. Didn't launch until 1:45!
If available, you could have taken a 1000' tow, but I needed to cool the engine down so ended up a 2000' self-launch.
It took three tries to get to the lift line and cumulus near the Rock Pile. Much easier after that.
Turned the Horseshoe Meadows Switchbacks. The road is still closed beyond the horse packing station, but there was only a little snow on the road.
Made it to 15,000' near Olancha on the return leg, but the clouds ended where the marine air had pushed further in, so had to work the El Paso range S of Inyokern to get glide home.
