First Arroyo Today

Not much to say about our hike today:  up to and back from First Arroyo on a cool 51F desert morning.  We're headed for a high of 88F, and tomorrow we're supposed to reach 93F.  93 in the middle of October is well over ten degrees above normal.  They say a cold front is pushing in on Wednesday, though.

Saw nobody on our brief sojourn in the northern Chihuahuan Desert.
