Practice session in Sion area

To prepare for another attempt at the Sion 194 task I decided to fly around in the area.  So I wouldn’t be cheating I only created a start point.  Here are some photos from that flight:

Headed toward TP1
I turned TP2 at 7200 feet. I'm flying for the gap ahead. 6200 feet should be enough to clear.
Skimming over the gap with not much to spare!
Headed for home - speed is up to 115 knots
I've rounded the corner and the airport is barely visible in the center of the valley to the right of my yaw string. Speed is now close to 125.
