|Desert Spiny Lizard (Sceloporus magister)|
Since Pamela and Terry's SUV was parked in the upper flatland I kept expecting to see them as we trekked up the dirt road toward Second Arroyo; we never spotted them. We saw no one else, either. Most sensible people remain indoors on such a scorching morning as this.
After we spent a long while sheltering in the shadows cast by desert foliage, and hydrating on the water I always bring along, we made our way out to LDR for the long hot slog back to the upper flatland.
