Brisa Caliente

Whitethorn Acacia
Felt like a blast furnace out there this morning especially with the hot wind blowing in our faces.

We did the standard hike, but took additional shade breaks due to the heat.  We usually leave the choice of stopping in shadow up to Willow who's not hesitant about pulling up for a respite.

We all were pretty anxious to get out of the hot desert sun and back into the air-conditioned comfort of the CR-V.
