Yucca Hunt

1st 7:  yuccas blossoming
We four got started about 8 this morning, doing our regular hike while keeping an eye out for flowering yuccas--at least Dr. K and I were doing the latter.

We didn't see anyone out there today; didn't even hear any dogs barking, but I did find a few yuccas to photograph.  The ones up in the mouth of Right Branch Arroyo were Banana Yuccas; can't wait to see them bloom.

After we got home I took Frio out for a ride in the Jeep; he loves to go driving in the Commander.
