Con Due Amici

First 5:  clouds and sunbeams in the Organ Mountains
The desert sky was pretty dynamic this morning:  sun shining through clouds over the Organ Mountains, beams splaying outward in all directions.

Willow, Frio and I hiked up to First Arroyo, dropped in for a drink of water and a brief respite, and then headed back.  We didn't see any humans out there today, but one Black-tailed Jackrabbit captured the Heelers' attention.  They wanted to pursue, but I held them back.

After our trek we drove over to the small post office so I could mail a bill to our utility company; the letter only has to go across town, but first it must be transported down to El Paso and back because our local mail must be routed through the main post office down there.  Crazy!

Mountains and rolling desert hills

Can't decide which I like better:  this one or . . .
