Trek Extension

Took a water break here
I ended up extending this morning's trek a bit longer than I wanted, but neither Becca nor I suffered very much for it.  We are slated to hit 90F today, which is easily ten degrees above normal.  The extended weather forecast shows some 70F days ahead, and we're very much looking forward to cooler temps.  Perhaps when the days begin to get a bit chilly Becca and I can hike even further than we did today.
Trail to the right of the yuccas is one of the steepest up the mountain
