Barely Beat the Rain

The coming storm
The temperature for our hike this morning was about twenty degrees cooler than yesterday morning, and the wind made it feel colder still.

During the entire trek it looked as if it could start raining at any minute, but, fortunately, the sky held off until we got back to the CR-V.

Then it began sprinkling, picking up force just after we entered our house; it rained pretty hard for a short period, and now (1:00 p.m.) the sun is trying to peek through some pretty dense clouds.

It may rain again later.
