Grass Valley - Los Angeles / Beechcraft Baron 58 (N2754W) / IFR

Grass Valley is a town in California with a tiny airport, Nevada County Airpark, from which I started this flight to Los Angeles. I know it best as the birthplace of the Grass Valley Group, a company that was formerly very well known for its video equipment (it's not quite so famous now as it used to be, probably thanks to multiple acquisitions).

This flight was very pleasant, over green hills most of the way, and just west of Yosemite. Lots of fluffy white clouds that didn't cause any troubles. The landing at Los Angeles was also smooth and uneventful, although I wasn't very graceful about maintaining altitude while intercepting the localizer.
