Between Yesterday and Today

Lady Ann Mountains
Yesterday I took 15 photos; today I snapped 50.  Not sure why I was in a more photographic mood.  It wasn't because the Heelers were less exuberant.  In fact, during one jackrabbit's mad dash to get away from Willow and Frio they lunged forward, pulling my arms out of the sockets and extending their reach--permanently--by about two inches.

Changed up the route a little this morning; after a trip up Left Branch Arroyo and back we ascended into the upper flatland via LDR instead of LDR-A.  Other than the fleeing hare we saw no other mammalian critters in the outback, but the trees and bushes were filled with tweeting birds--one even sounded like a mockingbird (everybody have your heard?).
