Flight to Gilroy California (South of SF)

Amy and I got a chance to fly to Gilroy CA last week.  It was the first time I have had a chance to use my airplane to go on a work related trip and it was a lot of fun.  We left early Thursday morning on an IFR flight plan that had us in the clouds for only a few minutes the entire trip.  We stopped in Red Bluff for fuel and then again flew IFR the remaining 90 minutes.  The plan was to fly over Oakland and get to see both big cities but ATC routed us around to the east so we didn't get to see much.  I took a few pictures and Amy took a few (that I don't have yet).

All tied down for the overnight stay at South County airport (Gilroy)

Somewhere in northern California.  Spent a lot of time and effort dodging clouds on the return trip.
