Shorts and tee shirt were the order of the day, despite huge wind gusts. We took a more leisurely route through the backcountry, stopping often to admire the magnificence of Nature. Even the climb to the top of the mesa was easier than usual.
Still some cactus and yucca flowers, but the ancient trees and soaring cliffs are timeless in their majesty. Such inspiration and delight 20 minutes down the road.
