I’m learning lessons I already knew, and some I could have figured out without a lot of thought. The lesson that it’s hot in the desert. (Yes, I may spend the next four months whining daily about that) A new lesson is that taking pictures during the day in the desert is near impossible… without shade, and it’s not like shade is growing on every … tree. (it is a desert after all, ever look for shade under a pine tree?)
Once upon a time, we took a walk through a nature path next to a resort. (Not really a resort we were staying in, but I had stayed there once, so it counted) And my daughter can now read… so she read a sign that said “Bats” Which is as far as she read before she got this precious, anxious, look.
