A Day Like Today

This & next:  sun through overcast sky
Chilly, windy and overcast:  three elements that made this morning's hike less than pleasant.  Nevertheless, Willow, Frio and I did our almost normal trek, cutting out our trip up the left branch of the new arroyo due to weather conditions.

I think I prefer the first of these two
