Another Near Ninety

Banana Yucca
It didn't feel as hot when we set off this morning on our daily trek.  Although the sun shone brightly and there were few clouds a slight breeze helped ameliorate the heat.  According to my weather app we're supposed to hit only 85F this afternoon, though we frequently--almost always--top out higher than forecasted.

Frio, Willow and I hiked up to First Arroyo, ducked inside for a quick shade and water break, and then made our way back into the upper flatland where we'd left the CR-V.

While we spotted a few critters out there today, we didn't see any of the human or canine variety.
