Some defining moments happened in this 'off the chart' crazy spring adventure. With virtually zero winds blowing, I finally soared over Panther mountain in the early morning glow. Then spotting some deep dry creeks, I was able to do some low canyon carving like only birds can fathom. On top of that, everything was in bloom and in hi-def colors..a circus of the senses. Then on the last evening, nature put on an encore show as a lightning storm danced in the distance.
