Back in the Chihuahuan Desert

A happy dog
It was nice to get back to the Sonoran Desert (wish it had been under different circumstances)--where Dr. K and I once lived--but it was good to return to the Chihuahuan Desert.  Returning from a huge metropolis like Phoenix, where the air quality is bad, made me happy and sad.  Happy to be back here where the air is still pretty good.  Sad that this place will be ruined by careless human beings who use and abuse theirs as well as others' ecosystems.
