The morning started out with the dawn ( el alba) sky (cielo) on full display, it was slightly cloudy (nublador) and a slight breeze (briza), there were some sparse clouds over the Sierras and some scattered cirrus clouds throughout the sky, the analogous colors radiated out from the sun’s path: a big swath of bright red (rojo), orange (anarahado), yellow (amarillo), cream, light blue, blue (azul) and dark blue (azul marino) sky. As the sky grew lighter, the analogous colors turned to pastel. The rabbits (conejo) were grazing in the fields, Labrona (rabina) was grazing by the basketball court. As the sun rise (salida del sol) the reddish orange sphere lit up the sky and warmed the air. As the sun ascended. it moved in and out of the clouds and slowly burnt off the clouds until it cleared it. All the rabbits left the field and grazed at he baseball field. Completed walking 6 mile at 8:00 AM, in 1hour 12 minutes and 15 seconds (son las ocho, en un hora, dose minutoes y quince segundos).
