Fun day with Travis

Today Travis and I joined Jeff, Chad and Becca on a trip to the Grand Coulee dam.  We got out of Puyallup around 8:45am flew at 9500' over the Cascade mountain range and landed in Electric City an hour later.  The flight was nice, a bit warm, but nice and smooth.  After a trip into town for some breakfast we returned to the airport and launched for home.  Travis did most of the flying coming home at 10,500' and we had a small fuel pressure issue that I need to look into but overall it was a nice flight home.  It's been a long time since Travis and I flew together and it was a lot of fun.

Chad took this picture of the smoke still in the valley.
