It’s been unsettled weather the past few days, and today was a bit on the windy side. But since it was the practice day we went up, just in case the wind dropped.
I finally went back down the mountain but lots stayed up, and a half dozen eventually flew. Tough scratching on the rim and the south wind was drifting then towards McNeil canyon and the rotor. But they managed to keep out and get to Lone Pine, before flying back as a band of shade moved through.
Tomorrow is the first task day and hopefully the wind will back off and it's not too cloudy!
