Morning walk

A storm is moving into the valley tomorrow, with rain forecast.  Snow is also forecast above 4,500 feet, which means more snow on our mountains.  I went out for my morning walk today, the first time in nearly two weeks.  My leg is starting to move better now, thanks to the glucosamine that I'm taking.  It was so enjoyable to get out, smell the desert,  and see the cottontails and jackrabbits running around the desert.  I saw a pack of 6 jackrabbits about two weeks ago, but this morning I heard quail calling, for the first time.  I see lots of ravens and an occasional Cooper's hawk when I'm out walking, but I haven't seen or heard quail until now.  I see them all the time up in the mountains, but not usually when I'm out for my morning walk.

Sure glad your leg is feeling better. I love to listen to the quail in my yard all winter.
