|The Meager volcano with the landslide. The valley floor is still snow-covered!|
Some pilots flew south instead, down Lilloet Lake, and reported equally light-but-north conditions as well. All in all it was a good day to stretch the XC muscles.

The SW was picking up and I could see lenticulars forming in the distance so I suspected it would get windy soon. After my photo session I flew back to launch and the SW was indeed picking up, to the point that I wondered if it would become unsafe to land at the usual LZ's later on. I ended up landing near the gravel pit to retrieve the car, and during my leisurely packup watched the wind pick up and the trees start waving around.
