|Hiking along the lower foothills|
Right now (11:40 a.m.) we've got a nice overcast sky, and the temperatures have dropped significantly. Earlier, though, when Becca and I were hiking the west side of the mountain it felt pretty lousy: hot, dry and no wind. We weren't the only lunatics out there, though; we saw a couple of other hikers and a man and woman jogging at top speed; in fact, I'd say the latter two were running. I kept cautioning Becca not to run, even when she saw several Black-tailed Jackrabbits and was chomping at the bit to get after them. Fortunately, she listens to me nowadays.

Cactus wrens are true citizens of the desert.
