Navigating Over the Hump

Willow and Frio

View from LDR-A
Willow, Frio and I trekked up to Second Mesa this morning, parked ourselves inside for a bit--during which time we drank water and took photographs--and then we headed back.

Saw no human or other mammalian critters while we were out there, but I was able to get a photo of a skipper that might be a Funereal Duskywing.  I've seen those black skippers before, but never did any research on them.

Only slightly warm when we were hiking this morning, and not too humid.  It's supposed to rain quite a bit tomorrow.
