Saturday morning exercise

I met Peggy and Paul up at the Flying X this morning to take a several mile hike down into one of the canyons. I'm glad I had my walking stick along! The descent was pretty steep and the trail was covered with rocks that made for a slippery walk. Of course, we had to go back up that climb on the way back. We had hoped to see and hear a number of golden-cheeked warblers, but other than the many cardinals singing and numerous black-crested titmice, it was a pretty birdless hike. We finally did hear one black and white warbler on the way back and one golden-cheek.

We also checked out a pond on another tract of refuge land and heard another golden-cheeked there. It was an enjoyable outing and we enjoyed the scenery of the hills. Spring is arriving and there was big variety of shades of green on the various trees. Spring green up is always invigorating.

This afternoon I did some reading and grilled out tonight. Not much else is happening.

Thanks for stopping by....talk to you later, Judy
