Tuesday Foursome

This and the next 2:  Heelers in the sand
The Heelers and I were in for a pleasant surprise this morning:  Dr. K decided to come along on our daily trek.

To avoid too much bushwhacking we hiked all the way up the long dirt road until it intersects with the southernmost east/west road, trekked east until we reached the  dirt road nature has reclaimed, bushwhacked down into our favorite arroyo and then exited the arroyo on the formerly old disused dirt road.

From there we hiked back to the east/west road and followed it to the long dirt road, which we took south all the way back to our waiting CR-V.  By the time we got to the vehicle we all felt pretty toasty from the relentless desert sunshine.  Things are heating up!
