Added Features

Three Kings yucca
45F when we started off this morning, 55F when we finished up.  There was a slight wind chill factor, but I never felt chilly despite having only my Marmot PreCip as outerwear.  Willow and Frio definitely weren't cold.

Willow was pulling like crazy, her nose glued to the desert floor like a Hoover on a shag carpet.  Don't know how I'll ever break her of that habit.

We saw quite a few birds out and about today, but no mammalian critters; thankfully no encounters with fleeing jackrabbits.

Although we added the entire length of Right Branch Arroyo after doing Left, I hadn't planned on exiting up the steep hill in the arroyo's head to the upper flatland road, but decided to go that way rather than retracing our route there.  Worked out OK.
