A fairly cold start (36F) was made more uncomfortable by a persistent wind that caused conditions to be even chillier. Nevertheless, we all hiked up to Second Arroyo, stopped for a short water break, and then bushwhacked over to First Arroyo.
We exited the arroyo and headed south on LDR, stopping quite a few times along the way for me to take photos of the gorgeous Organ Mountains, partially clothed in white.
Late yesterday the lower elevations of our desert got some on-and-off showers that transitioned into snow in the mountains. The sun, clouds and patches of blue sky made for some awesome vistas all during our trek today.

Lovely photos of the beautiful mountains that we saw this morning. I especially like "Soaptree Yucca and the Organ Mountains."
