Hot, Hot, Hot

Get ready, get set . . .
Back in the hot northern Chihuahuan Desert now, and Becca and I took an abbreviated hike on the west side of Tortugas Mountain.  I cut our trek short because the Beckster was definitely limping slightly.  I'll probably have to give her a few days off while I assess her physical condition.  I'm certain that her climbing and descending the ramp in and out of the Jeep Commander during the past week was probably a bit hard on her.  That rear compartment of the Jeep is a lot higher off the ground than you might imagine.  Becca won't be happy about being out of circulation, but it's for the best.
. . . the race is off

You have totally outdone yourself with those photos of the dove, Packrat. They're amazing.
