Last night I had a very nice flight in the Malibu from Eagle County to Grand Junction(KGJT). Had just some light icing on climb out but after the previous days flights I was happy to see just the light icing. It was just before dusk so it was a very pretty flight. Landing at night in the mountains is a little scary but fun. You know those mountains are 12,000 feet and you are descending below 8,000 foot is a weird feeling. The approach controller handed me off to the tower way to high so it made getting on glide slop very interesting. It was ugly, but i made it by the middle marker. Landing was smooth and technically nearly ideal. Don’t know where I’m headed tomorrow, most likely further west.
