Hat Creek

Had some picturesque flying this summer particularly around the 4th of July.

The trip started with a Friday evening glass-off at Hat Creek. Hat creek rim is about 25 Miles north of Lassen Volcano.

Conditions were perfect. Lavabeds were releasing lots of smooth lift late in the evening, which is why this site is typically flown.

It was super hot in the air, I completely overdressed. 

The scenery was great even though a little hazy.

Landing in camp is great, it seems like a while since I had a social landing. I can see why this is such a popular site, it has taken me many years to get around to flying here.
