Whoops!
Alula at Crater Lake National Park

Hi,

I just had a great time at Crater Lake National Park, Oregon.
I took Alula with me and did some flying over the cliff. It is always exciting to fly sloper in beautiful places.
video (10M)
p.s. Hope I didn't violate any law by flying RC gliders at national park

-Kai

I was there about 6 weeks ago. It was nearly calm, but there were some massive slopes.

Kai sir,
Good to see you taking advantage of all that Oregon has to offer. You seem to have made the most of your stay here this summer. A friend of mine used to caretake the Crater Lake Lodge in the winter and would be snowed in for months at a time. His favorite movie was " The Shining". True story.

Crater lake is beautiful and very intimidating. There's virtually zero chance
of glider retreival should it go down, and there's no deeper, colder looking
lake anywhere.

Yep! Kai, we would have had to ticket you for littering in a national park. Good thing you landed safely! LOL

Hope you are enjoying your summer in Oregon. I have been working in Washington and California. But Im back. Hope to fly with you again before you leave. I expect to recieve my SWYFT from Liftworx by the end of the week. Whoo Hoo!

Maybe Blue Lake PASS site or Lumber. Sorry I missed the Hand Launch Golf that sound like alot of fun. Nice pic of the group also.

Hand Launch Golf?

That is an awesome idea!!

Kai, when you get back, lets try that at the disc golf course over by Evergreen Park. We'll have to keep the Alula's out of the woods though
