|Becca sees two hikers with a dog|
While we saw a few outdoor enthusiasts around back of the mountain--two women with a dog, a mountain biker and a solo hiker--we didn't have face-to-face encounters with any of them. We did a moderately long trek with an extra long shade break for Becca at about the midway point. She has a favorite spot in the shade of a yucca where she likes to lie down and take in the desert surroundings. I don't mind waiting for her.

|This Prickly Pear will be spectacular when those buds bloom|
These photos really capture how turkey vultures can glide so beautifully on the wind currents (while looking for material to scavenge).
