Fog Alert

Some places had heavy fog
The weather woman this morning warned of potentially heavy fog, but we encountered none on our long trek even though we saw it in several locations--primarily at the base of the Organ Mountains.  The temperature was quite chilly around the Tortoise due to the heavy overcast and constant wind.  We were all dressed properly, though.  Although we saw three mountain bikers behind the mountain we didn't cross paths with any; the only person we bumped into was a German woman who we see frequently around Tortugas.  She's a big fan of Becca's and always has complimentary things to say about her.  
November 29th and Daisies are still in flower!
