With the trailer in the garage, the gear unpacked, and all the various little things that decided to quit working while we were gone now fixed, it was time to go wander in the desert. Just not for long!
Early morning starts while the sun is just starting to color the hilltops, were best. That doesn't mean it was cool, just cooler than normal. The ocotillo were all leafed out with bright green leaves but no red flowers.
The area I was in tended to hide the Superstitions. You could see the tops, but there was a fair amount of dust in the air that made them fuzzy.
Fruit was in abundance, if you wanted it. I realized how much I really do enjoy wandering the desert but I'm still not a fan of the heat. Time to go visit the Alaska family.
