I've never learned definitively whether the wind across a dog's panting tongue helps with cooling, but I imagine it does. Neither of our Heelers seemed too warm out there even though we did the longer hike up to Second Arroyo and back.
We saw no other outdoor enthusiasts today during our explorations, and the only critter we encountered was a Black-tailed Jackrabbit that got the Heelers' "chase instinct" activated briefly.
