With the North wind ending and before the coastal air arrived, it was time for some fun.
I launched just after noon, and flew over 3.5 hours. After Harrison I went for the back ridge and followed it to the "R", then reversed course and landed at the Andy Jackson Airpark. 31 miles total course and reached 8700'. Done with a low EN-B paraglider wing (Ion 3).
I saw Big Bear lake, but didn't feel I had the altitude to push it further. Making it an out-and-return flight eliminated the retreive. What a fun day.
