Fall in the Rockies, Malibu-style

Jumped in the Malibu for a quick jaunt to Jackson Hole today. Got there in 3:20 burning just 80gals of 100LL . . . the Mirage is one efficient machine.  Clear skies the entire route until descent, where we flew through a 2000′ layer or so from 160-140, broke out over the FAF at FAPMO and then greased it onto a still runway.  Beautiful night in the mountains, but cold! 31 degrees F when we opened the door.  Our warm Norcal departure didn’t prep us for that arctic blast.
