the long hike
Not in the mood for construction today so I took a hike instead. First stop - the swamp...two ducks been spending time there since the dam blowout. Long trek across the canyon and up and around the big hill east of me. There is a forest of Ocotillo up there - some doing a late bloom. Quite a few strange new flowers blooming as well. Pretty pooped after the long walk when I spotted that Benita finally laid down after a long day of grazing real grass. Felt her pain so I did a late afternoon water delivery to her so she wouldn't have to walk back to the house. 71,83,55,0,B
