Bothersome Bugs Bugging Us

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.

Even with Wind, Warmer

Early morning moon It was warmer when we got started this morning so the wind that was blowing didn't affect us as much. We did our norm...
