|Frio and Willow|
We trekked all the way up to First Arroyo where we entered, found a nice shady spot, drank water, took photos (I did) and then headed back.
We saw nobody in our remote section of the Chihuahuan Desert today, and that's not too surprising; weather conditions are not exactly conducive to late June outings in this arid land.
