Long, Cool Hike

The western slope of Tortugas Mountain
It felt really good out there this morning as Becca and I did a long hike west of Tortugas Mountain.  No encounter with Chihuahua dogs.  No looney-tune hunters shooting off rounds for the hell of it.  Only a brief hello to a woman jogger and the elderly gentleman who always hikes with a stick.  65 degrees with a cool breeze was perfect for a long trek.
Not exactly a geode

Both you and Becca seemed very happy after the hike.

Overnight Rain

Desert sea? Everything was quite wet when we got started this morning due to overnight rain.  But the only consequences we suffered were wet...
