Chilly to Warm

41F when we set out for First Arroyo this morning, but with constant sun and no wind the desert began heating up; so much so, in fact, that Dr. K and I were getting hot by the time we got back to the upper flatland and the waiting CR-V.

This and the next 2:  the same Soaptree Yucca

This and the next:  same Soaptree


Dead or alive?
