Location: Las Cienegas National Conservation Area, Arizona
Another good night's sleep. It was 39 this morning but climbed quickly. Tonight will be the last night at 39 and then the heat climbs quickly for the rest of the week.
While we were going through our breakfast routine, Yuma started barking and when I looked out the front window, I could see why.
He wanted to go out and meet his buddies in the worst way.
|Ride is over as quickly as it started.|
There was a fire that went through here several years ago and killed many of the biggest and oldest Cottonwood trees. Sad!
|Yuma telling me to hurry!|
|Picking my way through the remains of a huge Cottonwood that was cut down due to being killed by the fire.|
|The damage was extensive.|
|The creek is shallow and very muddy. So far Yuma is being a good boy.|
|See the stairs leading up to the bird watching seat?|
|There was a sign saying to walk the trail at your own risk. Limbs could fall at any time. Looks to me like they have.|
Lots of dead young Cottonwoods too.
It was on the walk back to the Jeep that Yuma finally went nuts. He started running at a furious pace along the path, across the creek and then back again, getting himself all wet and muddy. He was having so much fun I couldn't help but laugh. He doesn't know it, but this will cost him a biffy baffy and he hates those.
After we got home it was lunch time. Decided to have hotdogs on the grill. Two for me and one for Yuma.
|Me eating potato chips waiting for the hotdogs.|
|Ready for the fixins!|
All in all it was just a nice relaxing day with a little exercise thrown in. Can't beat that.
See you later.
