Raining Hail

Today we finally got an almost break in the weather. The little clouds were hanging around with the occasional rain shower, but it looks like I could get a sled ride if I could get myself in a clearing. We were in the town of Aschau just below the third X-Alps turn point. I had already been up to the turn point, so I didn't want to retrace my steps. Instead, I went up a mountain to the west.

Spitz of rain started just as I laid out my wing. I quickly got ready and took off from the spitzsteig.  Then I had an amazing flight in little bits of hail all the way down to the Inn valley. Luckily I was able to cross the river and get close to my next hike up.  

Of course my wing was soaking wet from landing in a rainstorm! So it is a little heavy!  The sun is almost out now and I'm hoping to get a sled ride down into Bayrizschell. 

Luckily I could fortify with myself with my favorite food; chocolate!

Looking forward to a warmer, dryer tomorrow. It should be a great day for flying!
