The ground squirrels were really active this morning, scampering along the cliff sides, just after a sprinkle. We sure need more than a sprinkle down here, but these critters must have been finding some good stuff that either sprouted or was uncovered, as they were very active. I couldn’t decide which ones to photograph, but the small head just poking above the rock edge seemed very ‘good morning!’ to me.
It was grey and cool and breezy and we opened our windows and never needed to turn on the air conditioning today. This summer has been much warmer than our previous four-and-a-half, and I am very much looking forward to what passes for autumn — although September can be quite warm. Fall is my favorite season, even here!
