|First 2: clouds and the Organ Mountains|
Frio and Willow didn't mind the weather at all, and even though they were energized by the cold they were very well behaved today; in fact I'd call their canine behavior "excellent." This is a trend I'd like to keep up.
There were a few outdoor enthusiasts whose vehicles were parked in the corner lot at Tellbrook and Sonoma Ranch, but we didn't run into anybody during our outing. We did see a lot of birds up near the source of Right Branch Arroyo, and I even took a few photos of them. Good hike this morning.
