Chilly to Warm

This and the next:  all fruit  is gone from this Barrel Cactus
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.

Saw nobody out there today, not even the Black-tailed Jackrabbits that have been making our lives hell during recent hikes.  Willow is always on the lookout, though, crossing back and forth on the trail like a Chinese kite in gale-force winds.  She exercises my body (and my patience) like no dog I've had before.

This and the next 2:  the same Soaptree Yucca

This and the next 2:  Frio and Willow


This and the next:  same Soaptree


Dead or alive?

Willow and Frio 1st and last caption for paragliders Neither Dr. K nor I seemed much in the mood for a morning hike so we shortened the trek...
