Northwest 2016 Day 6


Thursday Day 6
We spent Thursday morning shopping downtown for gifts for family and friends. After yesterday’e epic flying at Tri-Cities (Eagle Butte) the crew needed to recharge before heading out to a slope.
The choice for today was Grayback. It was after lunch before we headed across the Columbia and up to Klickitat. We stopped at Klick for a moment to check out the winds. It didn’t look great, so our expectations for Grayback were low.
We were surprised by the conditions at Grayback. The lift was turbulent from the lip, but was very strong as you ventured out over the valley. We flew our brains out until we noticed threatening clouds over Mt Adams. At about 6:30PM we aborted our flying with the storm approaching. 30 mins later, after shooing the cattle from the road, we arrived at Huntington’s steakhouse in Klick.
With a hearty steak dinner in our tummy we made the final run across the Columbia and into Hood through a light rain shower.
