Another Monday Morning Trek

Heading down LDR-A
The morning was pleasantly warm--nearly 40F at the start of our trek.  It only got warmer from there; we're headed for a high of 70F, which is quite like spring weather.  But a cold front is dropping in over the next few days, and it's going to get really cold around here for a spell.

We took a nice long hike up to Second Arroyo today, and we saw nobody else in our section of northern Chihuahuan Desert.  We did encounter several Black-tailed Jackrabbits whose flight across the trail ahead caused both Heelers to attempt to dislodge our arms from their shoulder sockets.  Fortunately neither Dr. K nor I suffered serious bodily harm.

Leading the way--sort of
