Cool Zephyr

Pale moon
It was strangely cool on our morning outing today, and a light breeze kept it that way during most of our outing; also, the sun was often blocked by cloud cover which kept the temperature down.

Thankfully the smoke that shrouded the mountains the last few days seems to have dissipated for now.  I couldn't smell any, nor did I have a dry tickle in my throat from the pollutant.

We saw nobody during our trek, but as we stood on the top of the hill west of Right Branch Arroyo while I took a snapshot of the Organs I saw the guy with white hat (henceforth to be known as "Mr. White Hat") and his dog, which ran ahead of him.  Mr. White Hat drives a large white van.  (That sounds like the first line of a poem:  Mr. White Hat drives a large white van./Ahead of him his canine ran.)

This & next:  much less smoke over the mountains

I like the photo of the Yucca that you propped up. And also the one where Frio seems to be laughing.
