Between Showers and Before the Wind

View of Tortugas and the Organs at the start of our hike
Raining this morning followed by a window of opportunity which we took advantage of.  We got our usual hike in before the rain came again.

We're under a high wind warning from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., but so far the wind has been only slightly strong at best.  The high humidity makes it feel like early spring.

We felt very lucky to get our trek in without getting wet.  In fact, after lunch we were able to go into the backyard with the Heelers and play with Frio and his ball without suffering any precip consequences.
