Frost on the Pumpkin

Not hard to find the observatory
Late afternoon yesterday, into the early evening and overnight we got some pretty good rain.  Therefore I should not have been surprised by the frost on the pumpkin this morning, the "pumpkin" being our CR-V.  Actually it was fairly significant ice on the windows.  Guess I didn't realize the temperature would drop to the freezing mark in the wee hours.

Had a good hike with Willow and Frio up to Second Arroyo this cold morning (34F at start).  We entered the arroyo, crossed up on the southern ridge beside it, and then dropped down into First Arroyo for our return to LDR, which we followed all the way into the upper flatland where the CR-V was parked.

Frio and Willow each have had a rattlesnake vaccination
