Pretty Cassidy Rain is getting in her daily steps up the east-west hill on a hazy winter evening in Spring Creek Basin.

P.S. Happy leap day!

Mariah of the wind

Ooooooooooh, that wind made the day COLD. Doesn’t the day look peaceful from the photo? Sure. … Except that Mariah’s tail is blowing sideways. 🙂

It wasn’t too bad, except that in a moment of seasonal misjudgment, I wore my summer hiking shoes instead of my winter hiking boots, the ground being completely dry and all. But it was my hands – under two pairs of gloves – that got a bit chilled. It IS still winter, after all. Even if Ma Nature seems determined to dry us out.

Rave-lita heads down the hill to a seep in the arroyo below. There’s still some snow on the north-facing slopes, but even that is going fast.

Well, it’s still dry. We got less than a tenth of an inch of rain the night before last, and the ground and roads were dry before I got out with the horses.

In good news, the dry allows me to see lots of horses. 🙂

We got some drips and dribbles of rain last night. I’m glad for that much.
