Comment

Declared 315k FAI triangle.
Boomer Ridge / Whitney Portal / Telescope Peak / Boomer Ridge.
Used Whitney Portal, as I didn't think getting on top of Whitney would be possible. Could barely see Mount Whitney from Whitney Portal, where it rained in sector and for a couple of miles after.
Rain again near Darwin on the way to Telescope. Dodging the heaviest, or so I thought. Made it through the sector at Telescope looking up at the Peak, as bases were only about 200' over Telescope.
At Trona called Joshua and got flight following through R2505 above 10,000'. Bases were around 12, so couldn't go far into the restricted area.
After the Boomer finish, went to Olancha and back to Boomer, as bases were now higher along the Sierras.
A better day than I thought, even with the rain and low cloud bases.
Holger, I was looking into your favourite valley!
