HIgh on Humidity

Wandering Glider (notice yellow-brown cell at each wing tip)
More rain last night and during the overnight hours; as a result the humidity was sky high during our morning trek up to First Arroyo and back.  Additionally, the bugs bugged the crap out of us, and the three amigos--Willow, Frio and me--were all visibly aggravated, shaking heads, pawing at ears and accidentally slapping a Blu Bandoo cap with an errant hand.

On the way back into the upper flatland there were jackrabbits to pursue, but nobody had the opportunity to do so.  As a result my arms got a fantastic workout as I struggled to rein in two Heelers who think they're wild horses.  Nevertheless, it was a good outing into our section of northern Chihuahuan Desert today.
