Soaring on a sunny November Day at Cliffside. It's a long way from the beach, but it was definitely worth the drive!
Just getting started
Looking back at Launch
Afternoon light and golden colors
Looking down at the remains of the aluminum plant
Cruising the ridge.
Going back to gain a bit more altitude
Surfing the cliffs and 'lichen' it! ;-)
Getting a bit too close to cloudbase. Heading out...
The aluminum plant
Looking back at the lift generator.
Time to turn up the heat on my new gloves!
Animal trails are everywhere on the hillside.
Getting up to the rim, and some blue 'holes' in the sky.
The windmills are massive!
Considering landing - Just because
Decided not to - Just in case!
Doing a little Christmas tree shopping...
The John Day and Columbia Rivers.
Body is starting to get cold... Time to head back.
John Day Dam - left center.
Sentinels over everything
Launch, barely visible in the glare and mist
One last look east.
Launch below and on the left.
Recording stopped here. Cold killed the camera battery!
Just enough juice for a couple more shots over launch
Frosty where the sun don't shine.
Golden skies on a golden day.
