On a Friday

Heading away from Tortugas
More bushwhacking for the Beckster and me this morning as we headed out west into the outback, always keeping our eyes peeled for wild critters, especially coyotes.  We saw none.  Even though we had our first freeze early (32 F) it didn't seem as cold as yesterday, perhaps due to the absence of wind.  We put quite a few miles on our paws before leaving for home.  I made a slight detour on the way--over to Celebrate to buy a six-pack of Dale's Pale Ale.

I like seeing the deer apples (perfect name)--a nice spot of color in the desert.
