Nice Trek

1st 2:  Soaptree Yucca flowers
It was supposed to be cooler, but it felt noticeably hot on our morning trek today.  Nevertheless, the Heelers and I had a good hike following our usual track.

At one point we flushed a Desert Cottontail who took off lickety-split.  Great reaction from the Heelers:  they stood and stared without feeling the need to pursue.  Progress!  Until regress.

Despite doing the full trek we all seemed pretty anxious to get back to the CR-V for the air-conditioned ride home.
