Another hot day in Chelan, and it was a late start and stable-feeling. Getting up on the rim was quite tough and a bunch of us tried for 45 minutes. We could have committed to flying to the powerlines and onwards to Mansfield, but our motivation level was low due to no official retrieve if we landed out and the need to be back early enough for the pilot's meeting :) So after festering on the rim edge we landed at the Chelan Falls park LZ for a nice leisurely packup and swimming.
Some pilots battled it out to Mansfield and apparently it got better as the afternoon went on. The past few days it seems to be better later: something to keep in mind until the next weather system moves through and resets things!
