Tuesday Rollout

White-winged Dove
Up to First Arroyo and back this morning with two fairly well behaved Heelers.  We saw a few critters out there today, but none that got the dogs revved up enough to want to chase.

It didn't feel too hot while we were out there, but things began to warm up on our inbound leg.  We're headed for a high of 95F this afternoon.

Smoke was again evident with the Organ Mountains as a backdrop.  There are several fires burning in the Gila National Forest, including one called the Doagy Fire which might be sending the smoke our way.
