Shopping Day Trek

In an arroyo
Becca and I got an earlier than usual start this morning primarily because I woke up early and wasn't able to go back to sleep.  The morning temperature was 36F when we headed out, but warmed quickly.  We're supposed to reach a high of 74F today.  We kept our trek short so I could get home and leave early for my weekly shopping jaunts to Target and Albertsons.  There were other nature enthusiasts on and about the mountain when we were there, but we only had a near encounter with one mountain biker high on the upper foothills trail.  It was warm enough by the time we got home for me to wear a short-sleeve shirt and shorts out to do my grocery shopping.  I was a bit worried other shoppers would think I'd jumped the gun with my choice of clothing, but there were a few other people wearing t-shirts and shorts so I didn't feel out of place.
