The weather was iffy – the pups and I were pretty sure it was going to rain, but decided before it did, we were going for a walk. Normally Friday is our day to explore new trails and parks, but the questionable weather made us lean toward known trails and quick access to the car if need be so we headed up to Gemini Springs again.

It wasn’t as spectacular a day as it was the first time we went. The weather was overcast and we took the opposite forks than the ones we took the first time around. One of the trails was quite less traveled and a great horned owl let us know we were in his territory and he didn’t like it.

The squirrels were in hospitality mode – several times when we were deciding which path to take a squirrel came out of nowhere, beckoned us a certain way, and accompanied us for a while.

It was unusual enough (especially with four dogs) the first time.

We got a quick look at a very large bunny down one of the less well-traveled trails but I couldn’t get my camera out quick enough to capture it.

It was a lovely morning, the rain held off, and I felt as carefree as this butterfly.
