On Saturday we decided to go to Hensen Gap and try making it back to Lookout. The forcast was better than it turned out. People sank out for most of the day getting only small, light thermals and minimal ridge lift. But, late in the afternoon, someone flipped the switch and it was blowing in nicely. I launched and went up immediately. Ollie, James, Miller, and I headed south along the ridge. Lucas was soon in the air and catching up. The rigid boys made it to Inman's point and were awarded with a slow climb drifting over Sand Mtn. When Lucas and I got to Inman's, there was only blue sky and little ridge lift. We loitered for about 30-40 minutes at treetop level waiting for a ticket out. Finally, we decided to take our chances in the valley only to find nothing and landed. I picked this field because I could land uphill and into the wind, but didn't realize how high the grass was. I had a nice flare and settled down into waist or chest high grass. It was a real chore walking out to the gate.Here is Lucas getting down to the gate. The grass was actually shorter here than where we landed!
Ollie, Steve Lee, and Miller ended up at Lookout and James landed on top of Sand Mtn. Great flying guys!
