Cloud Cover

First 4:  Ocotillos on ridges
75F when Willow, Frio and I left home this morning, and it was very humid.  We'd have been uncomfortably hot had it not been for a fairly solid cloud cover that remained in place during our entire trek.

Today's hike consisted of a journey up to Second Arroyo, where we stopped for shade and water.  After our brief respite we bushwhacked across to First Arroyo and out to LDR, which we followed south back into the upper flatland where the CR-V was parked.

We saw no other outdoor enthusiasts during our sojourn in this section of northern Chihuahuan Desert, which is a scenario not unpleasing to us.
