Headed for 60F

Tortugas and the Organs
When the four of us started off this morning it was 25F with a wind chill of 18F; it felt like that until the wind died down and the desert sun beat down.  Nevertheless, I didn't remove any outwear until the end of our trek.

We hiked up to First Arroyo, headed east to a sandy spot in the sunshine and stopped for a water break.  I took a few photos while we were there, but we didn't linger long.

We did see a man and woman hiking back up LDR as we descended LDR-A, but we never got close enough to wave hello.  They were the only outdoor enthusiasts in our section of northern Chihuahuan Desert while we were there.
