Yet Another Shopping Day

Where Geothermal Road meets Tortugas Mountain
I didn't extend our hike today because I had to go grocery shopping at both Target and Albertsons this morning.  But Becca and I had a very nice outing in incredibly nice weather.  We're headed for a high of 64F this afternoon, and a high of 71F tomorrow.  This is all well and good for people who love the warm temps, but am I the only one worried about the winter we're not having?  In all the years I've lived in the desert I can't remember a warmer winter.  And it's a fact that 60% of the state of New Mexico is in severe drought once again.  If that doesn't scare you I don't know what will.
Lots of photos of Becca this morning
