|About an eighth mile into the hike|
I was a bit sluggish because I didn't sleep well last night thanks to the idiots who were shooting off fireworks well into the overnight hours. Each time I began to drift off to slumberland some moron would set off what sounded like a stick of dynamite exploding. I'm not sure how late it was when things finally settled down and I was able to drift off to sleep. Seems like the alarm sounded 30 seconds later.
Although there were a few vehicles parked at the Tellbrook/Sonoma Ranch corner we saw no outdoor enthusiasts in the section of northern Chihuahuan Desert we hiked today. On the way home I made a detour to head over to a gas station to fill the CR-V up. Donned my mask and used hand sanitizer when I got back into the vehicle. The only other person I saw at the pumps was a guy not wearing a mask.
