Slope Flying at Cadillac Mountain

I was on vacation in Maine with my family where we made the trip from Bangor to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor for some sight seeing and some flying at Cadillac Mountain.

I flew the Combat Wings XL at the Blue Mountain Overlook just below the summit of Cadillac Mountain. The wind was coming in at about 15 and just slightly right. I launched just in front of the parking lot and found the lift a bit choppy in close so I headed further out and the lift became much smoother and was nice and strong. I think any plane would have flown there today but I would suggest being very familiar with any crunchy so you can hand catch it. The LZ is either solid granite or very thick brush, so I chose the brush.
