Between the Drops

First 5:  views from LDR-A
It looked iffy for a hike this morning:  heavy clouds and light rain.  When it let up about 7:45 a.m. I decided to take the Heelers to our regular stomping grounds to see if we could do a short trek.  On the drive over it began to sprinkle, and it continued to sprinkle while we headed down LDR-A.

By the time we headed toward the Organs on the east/west cross trail the rain stopped, and I figured we could do our normal route if we did it fast; which is exactly what we did.

We managed to do the full hike with only a sprinkle or two descending upon us--mere spits from the sky.  Don't know if we'll get more precip today, but we hope so.  El Paso has been blasted the past few days.
