|First 3: small Barrel Cactus off LDR-A|
Dr. K, Willow, Frio and I trekked up to Second Arroyo, marveling all the while about how much desert earth had been relocated by heavy storm water pouring out of Tortugas Mountain. And we kept complaining about the humidity because it made us sweat despite the much cooler temperature. We're headed for a high of only 93F today.
Didn't see anybody else in our section of the northern Chihuahuan Desert during our journey, and we all seem to like it that way.
