Breaking Wind Temporarily

Typical Chihuahuan Desert scene
Nice hike this morning with the two crazy Heelers.   A bit cool at first, and then quickly warming up.  No breeze to speak of.

Down LDR-A instead of the arroyo, east on the cross trail, up and down the left branch of the new arroyo, and then up and out of the right branch.

The weather was distinctly better than yesterday's; we could even see blue sky.  Unfortunately we're under another Red Flag warning again this afternoon, and now (1:30 pm) the wind is really picking up.
