Headed for a Record?

First 2:  Soaptree Yucca and the Organ Mountains
Early morning hike up to First Arroyo and back today; we saw nobody going or coming.  Although it was 55F a stiff breeze made it feel somewhat chilly out there; however, we're headed for a high of 85F, which will be a record.

A good time was had by all this pleasant day, especially the Heelers.  Willow nearly pulled my right arm out of its socket when she tried to pursue a rapidly fleeing Black-tailed Jackrabbit.  Frio did a number on Dr. K's arm as well.  We did manage to hold both of them in check, though.

Lots of fresh air and good exercise in our section of the northern Chihuahuan Desert on this 5th of November.
