|Heading down LDR-A|
Headed for a high of 107F today, and we were well on the way there during our morning trek up to First Arroyo. It was a slog up to the arroyo, but on reaching it we entered, found our regular shady spot to stop, drank water and spent a little time recovering from the heat before heading back.
Although we saw birds and a few jackrabbits we spotted no humans or other canines in our section of the northern Chihuahuan Desert. Halfway back, though, I noticed the SUV pictured in the photo below. I wondered if it was Pamela and Terry parked in a different spot, but it turned out to be a Toyoto RAV4 and not their larger vehicle.
Willow, Frio and I were all glad to get back into the upper flatland and our waiting CR-V. Got them inside, cranked the engine and turned up the AC full blast. Unfortunately one of the small flying insects that had pestered us during our entire hike had hitched a ride, and both Heelers were trying mightily to end its life during our short drive home.

I really like the photo "Grateful for These Clouds." Happy Father's Day, Packrat.
