Back to Chilly

This and the next 2:  this morning's moon
40F at the start of our trek this morning, but a stiff breeze made it feel much colder.  We're headed for a high of 57F today.  Thankfully, by the time we reached Second Arroyo the breeze had died significantly.

Inside said arroyo we drank water, filmed video and took photos while exploring the upper reaches before turning back.

Saw nobody else in our section of northern Chihuahuan Desert while we were out there; most people had the good sense to stay indoors during the early morning hours.



This and the next:  spent seed pod of a Soaptree Yucca

This and the next:  same Soaptree Yucca


. . . one giant leap for mankind
