An Extra Companion

Headed down LDR-A
Willow, Frio and I had an unexpected companion this morning:  Dr. K.  She decided to accompany us on our morning trek up to Second Arroyo and back.  She had not been with us since the fantastic chinchwood display kicked in after recent monsoon rains.  She was duly impressed.

Dr. K's bum knee was good for the entire hike, but once we reached the CR-V in the upper flatland it began to throb a bit; she said, though, that she believed it had gotten better overall.

We decided against going on a drive after our outing, opting instead to head straight home.

Gorgeous close-up photos of the Climbing Milkweed flowers. It was so nice to see how the desert is blooming.
