Cool Breeze

Ocotillo
A beautiful morning started to feel a tad warm by the time we reached Second Arroyo today.  Along the way we bumped into the pleasant man and woman runners who we often see on Saturdays.

In the arroyo I removed my vest and stowed it in the pack; by then it was feeling warm enough to open the armpit zips on my Marmot PreCip jacket.

After bushwhacking over to First Arroyo we headed back and were greeted by a much-appreciated cool breeze that kept us from feeling hot.

When we crested LDR we noticed a black SUV parked on the far side of Tellbrook, its rear door opened fully.  A moment later we saw the two large German Shepherds heading our way.  Fortunately they weren't aggressive, but our Heelers were very agitated and were nearly impossible to restrain; we had them leashed, of course.  But the idiot man who was trying to get his dogs back inside his vehicle had the canines running back and forth across Tellbrook, which often has a significant amount of traffic.  I have no problem with loose dogs if their handlers can, in fact, handle them; but if you can't control your dog(s) when they're off lead don't let them loose.

I like "Mother and Child Reunion" and the photo where Frio is staring into the camera.

High, High Humidity

Too hot to hike 72F at the start of our hike, which isn't too bad, but the humidity was sky high; it made for an unpleasant trek. Dr. K,...
