Weather Swing

Cactus Wren in a Yucca
Unlike yesterday--which felt like the first day of spring--today felt like the first day of fall.  It was cool, overcast with the promise of rain.  And our car did get sprinkled upon on the way back home.  Bumped into Jimmy at the base of the mountain.  We talked briefly.  He was headed for the top of Tortugas, and I wished him a dry journey.  I'm pretty sure he got spit on a bit, though.

Almost across the Crosscut Trail
