River, very soarable in NE winds

***Telluride, CO- I was set up to fly but a huge T-storm came through with lightning, rain, hail and snow. I didn't get to fly but had 10+ people under my glider hoping we would get struck by a Big ole bolt.
There are probably one or two I have left out, but my all time favorite site is Point of the Mountain, South Side and one of my most memorable flights was at Sheba Crater-incredible views, nice glass off and at sunset, a coyote's howl to add a Western flavor.

Hey Ray,

Our next birds of prey program that falls within that time period is at Dale Hollow State Park in Kentucky on January 26th. We start our Rock City programs for a 10 day span in March around the 20th. As always, anybody can check our blogspot (which Ray help us set up) at: www.soarsouth.blogspot.com Hey Ray, maybe I'll see you back at Lookout in the next week or so.

All are in California, and in order since I started in 2006:

Dockweiler
Kagel
Avenue S
Garlock
Marshal
Ord
Pine Flatts
Big Sur
Crestline
Dunlap

I'd be interested to hear if any of the San Bernardino pilots have launched Pine. I went on a group trip with Joe Greblo last summer to Ord, but we only got sled runs. He suggested checking out Marshal. When we got there, Waterman Road was just being closed by the CHP for a fatal accident, which closed off Marshall for us. Randomly, Joe says that some time back in the 70's (or maybe 80's) they launched from Pine Flatts, so we headed that direction. Magically, he finds his way to the most run down dirt road I've ever been to. It took an hour and a half in 4wd to get up to launch, there was even a tree stump covering half the road up near the top. Launch looked like it hadn't been touched since Greblo was there in the 70's. We ran through grass almost 2 feet tall to get airborne. We all landed out next to a soccer field near the I-215. It was one of the best trips I've been on. Great fun and a terrific flight!
