Grouse Mountain Oct. 16

Had a nice flight at Grouse today.  Nice cu's but a bit shredded-looking, not as good-looking as yesterday's.  On the way up in the gondola I saw Fedja and Peter Graf already flying but I had the launch area to myself.

Even though there were cu's overhead it was tough to stay high...I was able to maintain indefinitely around 600-700m, although Peter mentioned getting to 900m earlier in the day.  Best lift was around the Cut, and nada over the gondola cliffs.

I ended up with about 50 minutes and Fedja and Peter had over an hour.  Nothing epic, just nice to fly some autumn air and watch the ships and planes in the harbour.  Cold though...time to switch to winter mittens soon!
