A Mid-80s Day in March

View from LDR-A arroyo
Even though it was only 47F when we set off this morning I wore a long-sleeve shirt and hiking pants sans jacket.  Since we're headed for a high of 86F I knew it would warm quickly in the desert due to the blazing sun and lack of wind.  I was right.

We did our normal trek, and a good time was had by all.  One comical moment (for me) came while we were stopped in Left Branch Arroyo momentarily.  I took a photo, gave the Heelers each a treat, and saw--out of the corner of my eye--a cottontail emerging from a nearby bush at light speed.  Funny thing was that neither Frio nor Willow saw it.

More encounters like that, please.

This & next:  Allthorn bush

Frio and Willow

How many Barrel Cacti do you see?

Sly and the Family Stone

Praise be

Heeler or Javelina?

Willow and Frio

See you seeing me

Decent camouflage
