|Just getting started|
When I got back to Whitey the CR-V my pal Jimmy was just pulling up behind me, and I went to talk to him. I could tell he wasn't going to get out of his truck, so he invited me into the cab for a short chat. Turns out he and his wife have been suffering from the same thing that's knocked me down for nearly two weeks. He told me he'd been hiking much later in the day to avoid the morning cold. We palavered for 10 or 15 minutes before I popped outside and headed for Whitey for the short drive home.

The desert is looking very brown right now--we need more rain. Nice photos, Packrat, especially since you're under the weather.
