|First 3: Ocotillos greening out|
Heading back we encountered our archer buddy practicing with his new compound bow; he's always kind (and cautious) enough to give us great leeway when we approach, and he always has a pleasant word or two to exchange as we pass. He was the only other outdoor enthusiast we saw this morning, though there were a few vehicles parked in the dirt lot at the corner of Tellbrook and Sonoma Ranch Road.
We got in some decent exercise today, and we felt good about it during our five-minute drive back home.
