|First 3: Desert Cardinal (aka Pyrrhuloxia)|
Frio, Willow and I had a good morning hike today; we descended LDR-A, crossed the Tellbrook Arroyo and almost immediately trekked east up a trail along the northern edge of the arroyo. Then we headed north in the first small arroyo we came upon.
From there we bushwhacked northward in a series of open spaces and arroyos, eventually intersecting LDR at a point midway to First Arroyo.
We then turned south on the long dirt road and made our way back into the upper flatland where our CR-V was parked. Saw nobody else in our section of northern Chihuahuan Desert this morning.
|Next 2: Soaptree Yuccas encountered while bushwhacking|

I really like your third photo of the Desert Cardinal in silhouette.
