Day 914: Flying to the Badlands III

Shabbos at the Salton Sea was pleasant.  I spent some time over at the flight line catching up with pilots I met last year.  There were many, many pilots flying up and down the beach in the morning and afternoon.

This morning I flew out to the canyons by myself.  I decided to drop down into this canyon:

After exiting the canyon, I noticed this abandoned truck in the badlands:

This afternoon, a number of pilots got together, but most of us opted not to fly due to what looked like a gust front moving through:
