Springing Along

First 3:  Soaptree Yuccas along LDR
Another spring-like morning greeted Dr. K, Willow, Frio and I as we hiked up to Second Arroyo today.  We were actually overly warm, and I considered removing a layer of outerwear when we ducked into the arroyo, but a cool breeze convinced me to keep it on.

We stopped long enough to get drinks of water, take a few photographs and appreciate the beauty of our section of northern Chihuahuan Desert before heading back.

Our high temperature is supposed to be 75F today, weather conditions that are on the verge of giving us spring fever.
