Pretty cold and light conditions today.  It was a sad to watch Dusty and Joe sinking out, but sunny spot over flat lands was so inviting, and I went for it at 1:03 pm.  Found zero sink out front and stay with it for awhile, eventually it turned on and bring me to cloud base around 4500.  There was a cloud street running along the mountains, way out front, pretty unusual route down the range.  I stay under the cloud street until Harrison and then turn to the right toward the Hangar 24 brewery.

Jonathan, thanks a lot for retrieve.
