Hawk and Sprinkles

Slightly wet Swainson's Hawk
Took Frio and Willow out by myself this morning, and we got spat upon early.  I was a bit worried that my photos of the Swainson's Hawk might be marred by raindrop spots on the camera lens, but they came out OK.

We did our normal hike today, and we did see Mr. White Hat and his dog early on trekking west down the Tellbrook Arroyo.  They were far enough away, though, that neither Heeler got overly exercised about their presence.

Good time was had by all on the Tuesday trek.
