|On the upper flatland road|
We caught a break during the middle portion of our trek when the sun ducked behind high level clouds. Once inside Second Arroyo we took a break in the shadow of a huge yucca where we drank water and relaxed for a bit.
Then we bushwhacked over the ridge into First Arroyo and headed back for the upper flatland, where I spotted my first blooming Prickly Pear (pictured below). What I hadn't realized until later was that I had captured a photo of a flowering Prickly Pear in image #3.
Before heading home after our hike we drove to the small post office, where I mailed a bill, and then we headed over to the Pic Quik on University to get gas.
