On the Trail Again

The way the sky has looked all day
Becca and I got an early start on our trek this morning because I wanted to get in a decent hike before returning home to shower and keep a 10:30 appointment with the doctor I saw two days ago.  She wanted a follow-up to make sure my insect bites were responding to treatment.  They have responded well, but the antibiotic has done a real number on my GI tract, which antibiotics often to do me.  Nevertheless, Becca and I had a good time on our outing, especially because the sky was overcast and there was a slight breeze.  Very un-desert-like here in the northern Chihuahuan Desert.
I think there's a chance of rain in the late afternoon

Is this a green bee or hoverfly?

I've never seen a green bee before. I'm glad for both you and Becca that it was a little cooler this morning
