A Trek on Tuesday

Hedgehog Cactus at the base of a Soaptree Yucca
Dr. K, Willow, Frio and I did our regular trek on this Tuesday morning, hiking up to Second Arroyo, popping in for a shade and water break, and then returning via LDR and LDR-A.

Even though it was hotter, the sun stayed behind clouds during a good portion of our outing, and there was a constant breeze to help with evaporative cooling.

We saw nobody else during our exploration, and all four participants in our party seemed to enjoy the trek very much.
