Blessed Breeze

First 2:  Ladder-backed Woodpecker in a mesquite tree
Cloudy skies and a beautiful breeze made for great weather conditions on our morning trek today.

Frio, Willow and I did our normal hike, and I stopped to take lots of photos along the way.  Got a few good ones of the wildflowers.

After out outing we drove over to the local post office to mail a bill.
