Day 7: Las Colinas and Las Cienegas

Good Day!
I went over 100 miles just after lunch, which was a nice boost! 
The landscape changed dramatically about a mile after this morning’s start—I’m now in the desert! This is much more what I expected this section to be like.
Desert Flora & Fauna abound … pictures of some of the flora below … the fauna was less willing to pose for me. Saw a roadrunner (no coyotes yet), some kind of desert rat, lots of ground-nesting birds and several spiders (I sure NONE of which will make it into my tent tonight!).
The wind picked up big time around noon. That combined w/complete lack of trees and rocky terrain, had me worried about tent set up tonight. Fortunately, I found a little spot just big enough for my tent that is surrounded by creosote bushes to mitigate the wind somewhat.
I enjoyed a glorious sunset while eating my white bean & kale stew (don’t judge, … its not terrible). Even better, I’m enjoying it w/out shivering in my coat & gloves—it’s a balmy 60ish right now, and even w/the wind, it’s pleasant. 2500’ of elevation drop makes a big difference!

Daily Miles: 23.5
Total Miles: 114.2

One example is they may are already saddled through an illness so that they have substantial bills going to collections. It could be due to a work loss or perhaps the inability to do the job. Sometimes divorce process can really send the financial circumstances in the undesired direction. Thank you for sharing your notions on this blog.
