Day After

Just getting started
Our early morning trek was up to First Arroyo and back today.  We saw no one either coming or going.  We stayed inside the arroyo longer than usual because both Willow and Frio were enjoying lying in shade on the cool sand.  Dr. K and I didn't mind waiting in the shadow of tall yuccas before signalling it was time to head back.

The weather was pleasant out there, with a starting temperature of 56F; we're headed for 91F today, quite a bit above normal for this time of year.
