|First 2: Klein's Pencil Cactus (Cylindropuntia kleiniae)|
When you step out of your vehicle and the air feels really hot you know the day will be quite toasty. We're slated to reach 98F this afternoon, but I wouldn't be surprised if we hit the century mark.
Willow, Frio and I took many shade breaks during our normal trek, and I was as anxious to get into yucca shadows as the Heelers were. We saw a few critters out and about during our peregrination, but no humans.
When we drove along the upper flatland road on our way out I had to stop at the intersection with Tellbrook Road to do a little work; I removed and tossed aside 7 or 8 large stones that would have presented difficulty in exiting the dirt road onto the pavement.
