Another Morning With Bad Air

A look at how bad the air was this morning
For the second morning in a row the air was noticeably bad; the haze could come from western wildfires.

Willow, Frio and I hiked up to First Arroyo, stopped in for a drink and a brief respite, and then headed back to the upper flatland.  The heat and humidity were made bearable by the constant breeze, which often gusted into a wind.

The road construction on Tellbrook may be finished for a while; crews have painted lines in the road.  That makes the coming and going commutes far more pleasant.
