Breeze Glorious Breeze

This & the next 2:  views along LDR-A
The first part of our morning trek was a bit tough on Willow, Frio and me; hot, humid and sunny conditions were present.  But the last half of the hike was made more than bearable by a steady, cool breeze coming in from the south.  Don't know where the coolness came from, but it was greatly appreciated.

We saw no hominid nature enthusiasts out there today, but plenty of desert denizens were about.  A few are pictured here.

As expected the paving of the road was underway when we drove along Tellbrook early today.  Don't know how much they're going to do, but I hope not much.


I've IDed this beetle before, but not today
