|First 2: Willow and Frio on shade breaks|
Mr. White Hat and, presumably, his dog were already in the desert when we began our trek; I saw his white van in the turnaround at the corner of Tellbrook Road and Sonoma Ranch. We never saw him or his pooch while we were hiking.
Looks like we'll reach 100F again today. We were 101F yesterday. I'm beginning to pray for rain because it's bone dry in our section of northern Chihuahuan Desert.
|This & next 2: yucca that's providing the shade|
|A different Torrey Yucca|
|View down to the Tellbrook Arroyo|
|Coyote scat with berry seeds?|
|Had to stop on the drive home to capture this Soaptree Yucca|
