Mt. Shasta Fly-By

I almost missed my 2:00 appointment in Yreka CA because I brought an eBike for the ride from the airport into town. The eBike is heavy at 52 lbs so I took the battery out to make it easier to lift into the airplane. I remembered the battery, but I didn’t remember the key that is required to get the battery on or off the bike.

I struggled for a while to try to mount the battery without the key, then called the local one-car taxi company. Yes, he could make it out in time to get me into town for my appointment. Whew.

When I flew in there was a small lenticular cap cloud over Shasta, but when I left? Wow.

It was windy and turbulent where I was, but it was obvious where the big wind was and I stayed away from that. In fact it is scary to think about flying into the lee side of Shasta that day.

  1. Always been nervous when seeing lenticular clouds when mountain flying, but I guess it’s not the wind itself that gets you, it’s the rough air downwind of the mountains that gets you. Beautiful pics and video as always.
