About 50 Percent

Entrance road, Sunset Area, Tortugas Mountain Trails
Today is the first time since the 24th that I was able to get out and do a short hike west of Tortugas Mountain.  I felt pretty sick during those intervening days, and I had no urge at all to try getting outside.  Weather conditions weren't ideal this morning, but I didn't freeze my butt off, either.  Only one other vehicle occupied the Sunset Area parking lot when I arrived, but it was far more crowded by the time I returned.

I'd estimate my physical condition to be about 50% of normal, and now, after doing a fairly short trek, I feel pretty tired.  Going to take it easy the rest of the day.

I love that photo of Picacho Peak, Packrat. All of these shots are beautiful, even though you weren't feeling very well.

Even with Wind, Warmer

Early morning moon It was warmer when we got started this morning so the wind that was blowing didn't affect us as much. We did our norm...
