There were lots of pretty flowers out and about, and we ran into a veritable Barrel Cactus bonanza in one area that had several sandy arroyos running through it. People probably tire of seeing photos of Barrel Cactus blossoms, but I never tire of photographing them.
We saw nobody else during our sojourn today, and that was fine with us.
