|First 2: ocotillos and morning moon|
Fortunately the sun shone brightly today, so it kept us warm enough during our explorations. We saw plenty of birds while we were out there, but no ground-dwelling mammals. Frio and Willow didn't seem too disappointed, but that didn't stop them from trying to spot something. The colder weather has given both dogs an energy boost, and it's often difficult to keep them in check, but today was a good outing.
