|First 5: Claret Cup Cactus|
It was 65F when we started off this morning, about 15 degrees warmer than yesterday's start. Bone dry and hot in the Chihuahuan Desert these days.
Willow, Frio and I trekked up to First Arroyo on our outbound leg, stopped briefly for a respite in said arroyo, and then headed back the way we came.
We didn't see anybody else in our section of desert today, and the only jackrabbit I saw was at such a distance the Heelers didn't even see it.
Just came back inside from playing with the dogs in the backyard; playing with Frio, really, who loves nothing better than to have me throw a ball repeatedly for him to catch and bring back. Wise Willow spends her time alternately lying in the sun and the shade.

I like the close-up photo of the Mormon Tea--very impressionistic.
