Steady winds all day, reports of good lift. The practice task seemed to be a good call - all in the blue, but good climbs and good ridges to run.
It's definitely very dry and very bright slash sunny here. It's that searing rocky mountain sun and clear light you expect from the mountain west at almost midsummer. The camping area at the airport is filling up, the USAFA team arrived this afternoon, so it's starting to look like a nationals around here.
