Nature Lovers

At start
Dr. K, Willow, Frio and I did a nice hike on a hot, humid morning.  The sun shone brightly, and there was little breeze to ameliorate the heat.

Nevertheless, we did our usual trek down LDR-A arroyo, right toward the mountains on the east/west cross trail, up the left branch, down the middle, and up and out of the right branch.

Most of the time during the outing was spent swatting at bugs and commenting on the greenery seen in our section of northern Chihuahuan Desert.
