Mussel Rock - Day 2
I finally had a chance to get my first flight in at Mussel Rock earlier today -- soaring over the coast was everything I had hoped for. No need for a vario at this place; lift is everywhere. So much lift, that when I was ready to land, it took judicious use of big-ears (which is very common to see out here, and clearly helpful to ensure you avoid blow-back ) to get past the incredible buoyancy I was getting. I have no idea why some folks call it cliff-boring .. soaring is a ton of fun, and it's great to be a little more familiar with this site.
