Good Behavior on Hump Day

First 2:  morning moon
With the exception of their demeanor upon encountering a jackrabbit this morning--Frio and Willow each rearing up like stallions on leads--the Heelers were very well behaved today.  Willow pulled minimally and Frio seemed more than content to just casually sniff at desert scents.  How I wish they'd behave like this more often.

Due to last night's rains the plants and dirt were still wet from precipitation, but it was far from muddy out there; my boots, nonetheless, were able to collect a good amount of cake-frosting-like earth, which I stomped and whiskbroomed off when we got home later.

Did our normal route for the daily trek, and we saw nobody else out there.
