Sunday Chill

Heading around the mountain
Becca led Dr. K and I on a long trek around Tortugas Mountain this morning; although we saw a few other outdoor enthusiasts the area wasn't even close to being crowded like yesterday.  We're headed for a high of only 59 Fahrenheit today, with a low in the mid- to high-30s.  Surprisingly--though it was supposed to be windy--the steady sunshine kept us toasty.  In fact, unlike yesterday, I was dressed warmly--too warmly, it turned out.
