What was bad had to do with the number of ants out and about after yesterday's rain; they were everywhere, discouraging us from stopping too long in Second Arroyo. I did take enough time to photograph a Ladder-backed Woodpecker who was working on several different Soaptree Yucca stalks while we were there.
All four of us were eager to get back into the shelter of our waiting vehicle and to make the short drive home in air-conditioned comfort.
