On The Ground At Weed, California

I have just completed photographing Shasta and its glaciers.
Thunderstorms are brewing to the southeast, so I drop down into Weed for fuel.
Then it's time to run for home, almost 500 miles north. The changing weather
drives a tailwind that pushes my ground speed to nearly 230 mph, and I'm back on the ground
in Concrete by late afternoon.
