|Tops of the Doña Ana Mountains|
Nice hike under pleasant conditions today, and even though it was 39F at start the absence of wind made it feel warmer; add brilliant sunshine to the mix and the weather felt just perfect for mid-March.
We followed our normal route exploring the various branches of the arroyo I continue to call "new." I have a feeling our new area is going to be beautiful as soon as spring flowers begin to pop.
