Back to Winter

Cold and blustery out there this morning
It felt like a return to winter out there this morning:  very little sun, heavy cloud cover in some places, and cold, biting wind.  I left my gloves at home so I had to suffer with frozen fingers for most of the hike.

We trekked up to First Arroyo, but turned around before heading in; it was too chilly to linger, and I had intentionally left my daypack with our drinking water behind.  I don't believe any of the three of us felt the need for a quaff.

We saw nobody else out in our section of the northern Chihuahuan Desert, although there was a white Kia Soul parked at the Tellbrook/Sonoma Ranch corner lot--so we weren't the only lunatics hiking around in the cold this morning.

This and the next 3:  heavy clouds on the mountains

I love the photos that show the partly cloudy, partly sunny sky.
