Aborted Trek

First 2:  Barrel Cactus in snow
Due to extremely cold temps, ice and some snow we had to abort our morning hike today.  I did take both Frio and Willow, separately, up and down our arroyo to give them a bit of exercise and allow them to do their business.

When I was out with Frio the snow was coming down in small pellets; when I was with Willow the flakes had gotten a bit bigger.  We had, at most, 1/2" when we woke up this morning.  I doubt we'll get much more.

Temperatures will stay really cold, however, and we're worried about the cabin, where the low tonight will be 5F.
