Moon Day Trek

Velvety Nerisyrenia
We got off to an earlier start than yesterday on our morning trek, which was the usual one we've been doing each day.  It was 69F when we started out, so things hadn't heated up excessively--and there was a mild, yet constant breeze to cool us down a bit.

We saw two hikers at a great distance on LDR, but we never encountered them; they were the only other outdoor enthusiasts we spotted during our trek.

All four of us--Dr. K, Willow, Frio and I--were happy to reach the waiting CR-V at the end of our exploration, and we rode in air-conditioned comfort during our short ride back home.
