About the same weather as yesterday morning, but no breeze, so it didn’t feel quite as nippy. I was surprised we didn’t meet any other people and dogs for most of the hike—just me and Jack and the usual bird suspects.

No astounding sightings, no great photos—but I did hear yet another Juniper Titmouse up in the, well, junipers.

On our return, as we neared the trailhead, we ran into several people and dogs we knew. Good people, good dogs. (I guess they’re all good dogs.)

Also got a glimpse of a cottontail.
