Spring fly at Mission

Saturday it blew east, Sunday it blew hard west. Spring is here and California is green again. A few of us headed to Funston initially as it was overcast. But the sky was blue to the north and the west wind was already 20mph + at the coast. Mission was the call.
It was still light enough there, that paragliders were prettying up the sky. Cloudbase was lowish, but high enough to get most of the way to Ed Levin and back.

Cloudbase dropped slowly through the day, but the lift just got stonger and wider spread. It was soon possible to fly up the outside of the clouds.

I will never tire of seeing this.
It was a pretty day indeed, I think I flew for 3 hours or so. At the end of the day it was hard to get down. Happy pilots being goofy.
