The Heelers and I trekked up to First Arroyo on a very steamy outing; fortunately there was a slight cooling breeze that kept us from roasting. We stopped in the arroyo for a shade and water break before returning to the upper flatland via LDR.
We saw nobody else in our section of northern Chihuahuan Desert, but on the drive home we passed by several people walking their dogs. Both Willow and Frio were very well behaved on seeing the other canines, never barking or even whining at them. Good omen I hope.
