Awfully Hot with Ants

1st 2:  Organ Mountains
It felt awfully hot when we started our hike this morning; I think the humidity was high, and there wasn't a hint of breeze or wind.

Followed our usual route, and the "O"s were okay until we headed up the left branch arroyo and they picked up a scent.  Both dogs got quite "pully" and I had to restrain them mightily on the leads.  At a certain point, though, they lost the aroma and they settled down.

The sky was very pretty today, and I got a few good examples; nothing to write home about, though, if I had a home to write to.
