Another Monday Trek With Amigos

Desert Marigold
The trio of amigos hit the trail early this morning, doing our regular hike with the exception of the trek down Middle Branch Arroyo; instead we retraced our route down the left branch.

Both Willow and Frio were well behaved during our outing; they were good, too, on the drive both coming and going despite seeing numerous dogs with human companions.

It felt a bit toasty when we were out there today, and I guess we're headed for a high of 86F.  Praying for a few more days of moderately high temps in the coming days before we plunge headlong into late spring and summer weather.
