More Inspo

here's a vid I took from Saturday -

Inspo Photo Session

I got out to Inspo on Saturday. With the sky showing the possibility of overdeveloping, I continued, believing the incoming high pressure would dry things out later in the day. When I got to launch a PG instructor was launching students - about 8 to 10. Most were getting high, a few several grand over launch. As I set up, the the sky began filling in, and by the time I launched there was over 90% coverage. Surprisingly, there was strong lift everywhere.

I met a photographer and his wife on launch. They drove my car down. He was kind enough to send me the pics he took -

Thursday 5.5.11

Cody and I got out Thursday for some great spring flying. The Short Divide was on. We set up in soarable winds, and were soon in the air enjoying smooth lift. Both of us got high enough to fly down to Gunsight Peak. A high level cloud formation spread out and effected thermal production later in the flight. We landed at the Chevron station close to I-15.

A friend of Cody took some shots from launch.

Spring at Inspo

It was great to get out to the mountains after a loooong winter. Exceptional views and great thermals. Lisa V is seen on her bag near the end of the vid. Great climb0out!
