|Heading back to Woodside after flying west to Deroche.|
I missed the first group of pilots heading west although it sounded like it was a bit early still for the crossing as most ended up at the Sandpiper airstrip at the base of Sasquatch Mountain. I think Alex, Paddy, and Peter made it away. When I got high enough for the crossing I was alone but made it easily enough from 1300m. Lots of shade around Sasquatch and Deroche and I ended up turning around at Deroche where Alex and Paddy were returning from a run out to Dewdney.

The Bridal side was looking very shady and Andrew was reporting little luck over Green Hill and it was looking like it could be windy in the valley and into Hope, so several of us headed to Bear to see what would happen. In the end I flew back to Harvest West where Alex was packing up, while Al landed at Harvest and Andrew landed in Agassiz. Peter made it back to Woodside while Tom Chromy did fly to Hope and landed at the airfield.
