The desert sun isn't too cool after 11:00 AM. It's hotter than Hates and the glare from the sun is blinding. It can also burn you to a crisp, if you don't find shade. In the image, a young tree of the genus Miconia reaches out over the edge of the woods to explore the sandy road. My car was stuck in it about a 100 meters away. Taking the wrong turnoff, we had dropped down the bluff almost to the edge of the river. Now to get back up the hill and on to the birthday party was going to be an adventure.
