Blowing-up Wind

Base of the ancient Soaptree Yucca
The wind was blowing fairly hard when Dr. K, Willow, Frio and I got started on our morning hike; it was the kind of wind that often precedes a desert storm.  No precipitation while we were out there, but the forecast gives a slight chance for severe weather this afternoon.

We heard, and then saw, three dirt bikers zooming down LDR; we watched them zip over the ridge to the south.  Even though the sound of the motorcycles was loud, the riders were quite distant.

When we got back home it was high time to bathe the Heelers, which we did; took maybe an hour and fifteen minutes to do both.  They came out fluffy and clean;  well, at least Frio is fluffy,  Willow has much shorter hair.
