Van Nuys Under The Clouds

Had a great flight yesterday from El Monte to Van Nuys. On the way there we couldn't climb above 2000 feet or else we would have been in the clouds. We ran along the ridge that is famous for the "Hollywood" sign and then popped over where there was an opening. The Van Nuys area was clear as anything. Ron guided us into a left pattern for runway 16L and put the Cherokee on the ground smoothly and on the centerline. We taxied over to the Air Tel hotel and parked next to a long line of private jets. We felt kinda funny and kinda cool putting our little Cherokee 140 next to all the big stuff. Why did we go? A dry run, if you will. Thursday we are going to go to the Air Tel hotel for a seminar on mountain flying and we wanted to make sure we knew where we were going.
