Rainy and Cooler

Different kinds of power
This morning was the kind of morning I expected yesterday; we got rain during the night and it was heavily overcast in the morning.  The cloudy conditions lasted, but, after yesterday's hiking fiasco, I decided not to push the issue of going further.  Besides, Becca didn't seem completely into our outing today.  So we did a moderately long trek, returning home at about 9:15.  We saw quite a few other hikers, bikers and runners out there, owing, no doubt, to the cooler weather.

Many photos of a muted sun this morning

Speed it up, will you?
