Horned Lizard Day


Three Barrel Cacti
It wasn't brutally hot when Dr. K, Willow, Frio and I set out on our morning hike today, but it was hot--and humid.  Both Heelers were well behaved, but, as Dr. K pointed out later, there was nothing to trigger them to behave otherwise.

Saw a couple of well-camouflaged Horned Lizards out there today, and probably would never have noticed them if they hadn't scampered out of our way.

Noticed two hawks during our exploration, but didn't bother trying to photograph them because they were too far away.
