It rained over night and was still raining this morning when we got up. I took the first picture out the door. The next ones after that I ventured out once the rain stopped.
I could see the small wash near the Saguaro moving.
There were definitely puddles in the desert.
Though they never last to long.
Later in the morning the wind joined us.
As you can see from the pictures the wind keeps
the sky surrounding us changing quickly.
This afternoon we decided to take a ride over and check out the spot we would prefer to be parked in and, of course, there is someone parked there. Though we did find a spot close by that one we liked so fingers crossed one is open when we come back after we dump and take on water on Wednesday. It started to rain so we took a short ride. The plan had been after checking out the spot Tom would let me off West of where we are presently so I could walk back with the wind at my back but I really did not care to walk in the rain. Once we got back the rain had stopped so he drove out a ways and I was able to get a short walk in. The pictures below are from that walk.
Almost home, I can see the Stinger "B" not to far ahead.
I just made it back as a light rain started.
It was a chilly day today, the real feel said
45 degrees. Walking with the wind behind me
kept the walk pleasant. Glad I made the effort.
As the sun was setting this evening it brightened up the sky
and desert floor around us.
The sun is making its way down on our day.
Even though we did not see it much today it did
make a nice appearance before leaving for the day.

Pictures from today's walk.
Leaving the Stinger "B" behind.
I know he is blurry and that is because I did a lot of cropping
to be able to see him. He was a very tiny little lizard.
The arrow is pointing to where I spotted him in the bottom photo.
Teddy Bear Cholla.
I had started out on my walk today heading towards the East and made a wide circle turning North for a while. When I finally turned West I was not sure how far I was from home. I was glad when I crossed over to the road I knew would lead me to the Stinger "B" to be able to see it in the distance.
After I got back to the Stinger "B" we took a short drive. We finally saw some Quail and I got this one peering in the water.
We pulled back in just as the sun was
slipping behind the mountains.
Tomorrow we will be moving to take on water and dump our tanks. Not quite sure were we will land afterwards though we have a couple of ideas. Fingers crossed no one else has the same idea.
We are glad you stopped by!
If you have time to leave a comment we would enjoy hearing from you.
