I was at my parents' house on Monday and Tuesday and I made it a point to go for a trail run Tuesday morning. It was really fun to run the trails I hiked a lot as a kid. The trail up the canyon was closed off, which was new, and shortened my intended run, but I still got 5.5 miles in.
It had rained a bit the night before and the smell of damp sage and juniper was divine.
Later that morning, I walked with my mom and her dog and got several good photos of wildflowers. The high desert is a beautiful place.
Photos in no particular order because I'm lazy:
