After the Snow

Soaptree Yucca
It was very cold at the start of our hike this morning--20F--and the temperature hadn't even reached the freezing mark by the time we returned:  30F.  It didn't feel too bad out there, though, because the Heelers and I were all appropriately dressed.  Add brilliant sunshine to the mix, and all was well.

B+ for Willow and Frio today due to excessive interest in fleeing jackrabbits, although they didn't lunge forward as much as they have in the past.  In other words they were fairly good.

We did our regular trek today, and that allowed us to get the exercise we weren't able to do yesterday.
