Trading Low Country for High

Organ Mountains
Dr. K, Willow, Frio and I did our normal hike this morning before returning home to finish packing for our trip to the high country, where we are now.

About an hour after we got up here it started raining.  Thunder, lightning and brief heavy rain all combined to scare the crap out of Willow.  It still looks as if it could keep raining for quite a while.

Obviously it's much cooler up here, and all of us appreciate the change of weather.
