Desert to Sky Island

This and the next 2:  sky over desert hill
Becca and I did a shorter hike this morning so we could hurry home and finish packing for a trip to the Sacramento Mountains.  The morning was pretty nice down in the desert, but it's a little colder up here:  overcast and about 50F.  Supposed to dip into the low 30s tonight.  After we ate a late lunch and unpacked, Dr. K, Becca and I took a short walk around our property.  It looks pretty nice up here, and, as Dr. K pointed out, the place doesn't need any yard work yet.  That's a relief, but it won't be long until I'll be mowing and weed-eating (with a weed-eater, of course).  I'm guessing we'll probably do a short hike tomorrow morning, possibly on the Grand View Trail--one of our all-time favorites.

That's a really nice photo of you and Becca, Packrat. Even though it's pretty chilly up here, it's nice to be in the high country for Spring Break.
