Grouse Mountain July 15

Grouse Mountain with Crown Mountain to the far left.
Lots of cu's over Burnaby!
Went up for a late-afternoon flight with Alex and Bill, and despite the lateness of the afternoon it was still strong!  Cloudbase was just below our airspace limit of 1981m and there was plenty of lift under the clouds.  After an hour or so I went over the city and boated around over the golf course and the Capilano suspension bridge, and it was very thermic all over the city as well.  I'm glad we didn't land any sooner, as the LZ was still very thermic even at 7pm and a challenge to get into safely when it's blowing significantly from the SW even at ground level.


Downtown Vancouver, Stanley Park, and YVR airport in the distance.
