Good Day at Mount Tamalpais

Just occasionally Mount Tamalpias where I work, becomes soarable, its rare and sometimes a surprize. Yesterday turned out to be one such day. Very pleasing indeed.The typical flight down is 8 mins or so, at 2000ft MSL and a sink rate of 240 feet per min descent rate this adds up.Yesterday though we climbed up over launch and caught the rare views.It was a bit bumpy and after 30mins my student could do no more.We came in for a sweet landing into a 12mph headwind. With 3 flights in the day we were just in time to catch the sunset!
