Excessive Heat

First 3:  heading down LDR-A
It felt so hot this morning we decided to cut out two legs of the hike--the left and middle branch arroyos--and simply descend LDR-A arroyo, turn right on the east/west cross trail and then head up and out on the right branch arroyo.

We set a record high temperature yesterday--107F--and we're headed close to that again today.  It isn't even summer yet, and I'm already sick of summer.  I wish we could at least get some monsoon rains.

Next 3:  Organ Mountains

Great camouflage:  Texas Horned Lizard

Frio and Willow on break

Tortugas and the Organs

This & next 2:  our Desert Willow
