Night Flight

My teenage niece visited me from Australia for three weeks in March before leaving for a nine month trek through Latin America; one of the things we did was take a nice evening and night VFR Bay Tour around the Bay and Napa, etc., from my Oakland home base in one of the club's 172s. She took to it immediately, and spent a lot of the flight actually flying (of course). She's also a photographer, this time using my little snapshot camera for the first time; some of the impressions are below, mostly as shot by her. A great break from work and all the rest….
