PG dynamic soaring up to Veleta/Mulhacen - Sierra Nevada - Spain
May 1, 2020
As most of us are not able to fly at this time like Pepe in Spain, he created some videos and shared this one with us.
Mulhacen is 3.479m. ASL. The mountain rage is by the City of Granda. It is very close to the sea nad it proivdes fantastic maritime convergence.
If you would like to watch more videos from Pepe, he has a Youtube chanel. Nimbus Volador
