I emailed CoL a couple weeks before my intended trip. They responded within a day and informed me I could join them if they were flying that day and/or forwarded my request to the land owners. Overcast and rainy day, but clear enough for me to enjoy sweeping views of the Palouse, Tiptoe Butte, Cour D'Alene Mountains, etc. Highly recommend driving up Tiptoe Butte if you're driving by.
