Cold, Blustery Day

Sky starting out
It started raining late afternoon yesterday and rained steadily--though lightly--all through the night and into the early-morning hours.  At about 9:30 I was able to get out onto the trail west of Tortugas Mountain for an hour-long trek.  There were a few other cars in the Sunset Area parking lot, but I didn't see any outdoor enthusiasts.  The wind was quite forceful, and whenever the sun disappeared behind the clouds it felt chilly-to-cold.  Becca gets her sutures out tomorrow morning, so I should be able to take her with me on Wednesday.
