|In the forest|
The dogs were particularly unruly, pulling this way and that in an attempt to inhale every new scent that came their way. Fortunately we ran into nobody else (with dogs) either coming or going.
When we got back I roamed around in the forest near our property in order to photograph some cacti I'd seen earlier while scouting the area with Frio. I'm not sure I've identified them properly here.
