It's a Beautiful Morning

Easter Island
I thought briefly about including a further line or two from The Young Rascals' song (they were called that before dropping the "Young"), but decided not to test your forbearance. The weather was gorgeous when Dr. K, Becca and I headed out of the Monte Vista parking area for a two-thirds trip around the Tortoise and back again.  We ran into Jimmy on the east side of the mountain.  Becca ran ahead to greet him, as Jimmy is one of her best buddies.  We all chatted (not Becca) for a few minutes before heading our separate ways.
