The beat of raven wings

Temple’s and Madison’s attention was caught by the sound of a raven flying along a wall of the nearby arroyo.

I had started walking down into the arroyo to follow another band that had gone through it and was grazing farther along, just above it. When I happened to look behind me, I saw that I had some taggers-along (or is that tag-alongs?).

This might be their version of “hey, nothing to see here … look, over there!” ๐Ÿ™‚

Pretty Winona on a pretty day in Spring Creek Basin.

We’re crossing our fingers for rain today and tonight. In such strange times, it seems so weirdly normal to be doing such a small thing as hoping for rain.





Nap perfect

Puzzle took advantage of the spring sunshine to catch a little nap with gal pal Spirit.

No clouds are on display in this image, but if a cloud crossed the sun, the wind kept things on the chilly side.

Wildflowers are blooming in some southern places (thanks, Mom, for the pic ofย  bluebonnets in Texas!), but we’re still quite a bit behind that kind of spring display. ๐Ÿ™‚

led to a little of this yesterday afternoon. ๐Ÿ™‚ Note the rain in the background. We did get a little dampness.





Greater distance

Way out yonder, wild horses graze. Our most recent little weather system brought some snow to the higher places above the east-southeast side of the basin. But the waves of infrequent, light rain we got a few days ago is all we’ve had here in the lower elevations. What’s that all about? The dry lands could use some more moisture.

Skywalker the hefty looks back at a band that rebuffed his advances. He appears to be disappointed that they’re practicing distancing-from-bachelors of at least 60 feet.
