A Few Days in the Mountains

Moon over the Sacramentos
I explored the forest around our place with Willow and Frio before Dr. K and I packed up for our return trip to the lower Chihuahuan Desert.  We had a fun few days in the Sacramentos this time.

Here in the lower altitude it's hotter today, but not by too much; we're expecting a high of 74F.  I can live with that.

Tomorrow it will be back on desert trails with the Heelers.

This and the next 4:  Lacespine Pincushion Cactus



Lacespine is Mammillaria lasiacantha

At first I thought "Townsend's Solitaire," but the beak is long

What a cute photo of Frio. I also like the photos of the Lacespine Pincushion Cactus.

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...
