Early flights are beautiful here in the desert. Heres a picture of the Cessna 172 I flew this morning. The photo was taken right at sunrise here in southern Arizona.

This time of day is particularly business for General Aviation aircraft here in the desert. By the time the sun heats the desert later in the day, it becomes quite bumpy and theres increased chance of thunderstorms this time of year. The morning provided for a smooth flight.

It was quite enjoyable.
