|This and the next 5: exploring another "new" arroyo|
One good thing about our hike today was we got to explore yet another "new" arroyo, one we'd overlooked the past few months. It was a good one, stretching northeasterly through the rugged arid territory; it provided plenty of shady resting spots for the two Heelers even though the temperature was nowhere near as hot as yesterday.
It was 102F at the Farm & Ranch museum near our house yesterday, but we're slated to reach only 82F today--quite a substantial change.
