Sloping at Peterson Butte

Just wanted to share a couple of pic's from my 2 hrs a Peterson Butte today. Wow started out with 6-8 mph and when I left it was 22 - 28 mph and I was the only one there except for the Hawks and Vultures. I will have more pic's next time with my real camera and not my phone. Enjoy!!
Flew DAW I-26 and my Zagi combat and my Glassed Ninja.
here I added on some of the Glassed ninja build photos

Saw how nice and clear it was this afternoon on my ride back from Bend. Looking forward to getting up there soon. Looks like you had the place to yourself!

Agreed! -- Please say hi to the usual suspects for me... oh, there aren't any RC ones left, I was the last one to leave. I'll e-mail Hal, but since he's been retired he's had less time.
I assume the regular hang glider dudes might be there, Duane and Pete at least, Steve may be down here somewhere right now doing a raptor migration count.
OK, I admit it, I miss Peterson a bit. No matter what you do, there always are trade-offs...
