Another Warm One

The squiggly contrail is from a launch at White Sands
Very warm morning for our hike today:  52F at start.  We're headed for a high of 71F.  We trekked up to First Arroyo, spent some time inside drinking water and taking photos, and then headed back.

Saw no one else in our section of northern Chihuahuan Desert while we were there.  Did spot a wispy contrail over the Organ Mountains that signified a launch from White Sands Missile Range.  If we had looked up a little sooner we might have seen the missile itself
