Clouds to Sun

First 2:  clouds blocking the sun over the Organs
Although we're under a Red Flag warning again this afternoon the morning hike was fine.  Started off with high cloud cover giving way to partial sun.  Made for some interesting photos.

We had one dicey encounter with a jackrabbit that got both Frio and Willow revved up and ready to chase; but I called them off, and they responded fairly obediently.  I say "fairly" because they're never completely willing to give up on the possibility of pursuit.
