Brief Chill

View from LDR-A
For a very brief moment this morning as Willow, Frio and I set off on our daily trek it felt slightly chilly.  It didn't last long, though.  By the time we were descending LDR-A the temperature had risen significantly, such that I began thinking "It's hot already."

We hiked up to First Arroyo, entered and found a shady spot, drank water and then headed back.  The only person we saw was a woman who had parked her RAV4 at the brink of LDR facing north just as we drove in to park the CR-V in its usual spot.  Don't know what she was doing, but she drove off when we began our hike.

A distant jackrabbit caught the Heelers' attention midway to First Arroyo, but neither pup was inclined to pursue.  Good thing for my shoulders.
