The Edge Of Sunset

On the third approach at Napa with John under the hood and me observing, we slip slowly into a 500' thick cloud bank on the edge of sunset. It's an astonishing feeling and sight as the clouds come up at you and envelop you head-on (and suddenly everything's bathed in an unnaturally white light), and while I've done it a couple of times before in the 172 (with Dave Montoya on my original PP-ASEL license training), it never gets old.
