Sierra Vista Saunter

Sacred Datura flower and buds
Two factors prevented us from doing a normal hike this morning:  the rainy weather and a transitory limp I've noticed with Becca's right leg.  She's limped each of the past two mornings, stopping almost as soon as I examined her right paw.  I find nothing, so we're wondering if it's arthritis.  I have been giving her a glucosamine/chondroitin/vitamin C supplement for months, but the elevated humidity from recent rainy days might have something to do with joint pain.  So we took a drive out to OMDPNM this morning and did a short saunter on the Sierra Vista Trail.  She seemed fine afterwards.
