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

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...
