An Experiment

Willow and Frio
We did our normal trek this morning, and the weather was so warm I did not have to wear a jacket--just long-sleeve shirt and hiking trousers.  It seemed a bit humid out there, perhaps due to the light precipitation we got overnight.

Just after we made a left turn into Right Branch Arroyo I let the Heelers off lead, and they both responded brilliantly; of course I had to use treats (Pupperoni) to keep them nearby.  Nevertheless, Willow paid attention superbly, and whenever I called her back she responded immediately; and because Frio watches her closely at all times he, too, followed suit.

We all enjoyed our morning hike immensely today due to a number of factors, not the least of which was the beautiful weather.  My hope, though, is that we're not already in a permanent warming trend, and that we'll get to experience more cooler days before slipping into the Chihuahuan Desert spring and summer.
