After the Soaking

First 3:  happy Ocotillos after the rain
The key weather conditions during this morning's trek:  sunshine and humidity.  After yesterday's rain it was muy uncomfortable during our hike up to Second Arroyo, our bushwhack over to First Arroyo, and our return along LDR back into the upper flatland where the CR-V was parked.  All in all a very uncomfortable outing.

The behavioral issue most detrimental to my mental well being during the trek:  Willow's near rabid urge to get over to the woman running with her dog, both of whom we see fairly regularly in our section of the northern Chihuahuan Desert.

I'm not sure what I can do to break Willow of this bad behavior, but it's got to come to an end.
