Dr. K, Willow, Frio and I did our regular hike, and we took a bit more than our usual number of shade breaks. We stopped often, too, while I took numerous photos. Couldn't get a decent image of the Swainson's Hawk, however.
Although we all enjoyed our outing we were anxious to get back to the air-conditioned comfort of the CR-V and the cool ride back home.
