A Bit of Spit

Clouds over the Organs
It was barely sprinkling at home when I decided to leave with Willow and Frio for our morning hike.  We made it down to the Tellbrook Arroyo and into the desert southwest of Tortugas Mountain before I began to suspect we might get wet.

As soon as we turned to head back the rain began:  sprinkle to drizzle to light shower.  It tapered off a bit while we ascended LDR-A, but came down a little harder when we reached the upper flatland.

It started to pour just as we got into the CR-V, and we were thankful we didn't get drenched because the temperature was quite cool, and cold precipitation would have been an unwelcome experience.
