|Yucca island in the middle of Second Arroyo|
For the first two-thirds of our morning hike the wind was a constant--and annoying--presence. It made the 38F temperature feel much colder. However, the brilliant desert sunshine had an ameliorating effect on conditions, and neither Dr. K nor I were freezing. Later, during a water break in Second Arroyo, we did notice Willow shivering a bit. Might have to find some outerwear for her.
We saw nobody during our outing today, though there were a few vehicles parked in the lot at the corner of Tellbrook and Sonoma Ranch when we first started off. While hiking, Dr. K and I discussed the many December days characterized by strong winds, and neither of us could remember such a preponderance of windy days in the past.

I like the photo "Yucca, strange cloud, Ocotillo." A windy way to start the week.
