When we were in Arizona, Dennis and Naomi went for a hike. In the middle of the afternoon in May. Maybe a bit much but they enjoyed it. Here's Naomi at that same desert park on a trail ride. On horses!
I'm prepared to admit, but only sort of, that the desert can be beautiful. It looks like a good time on the horses. They weren't on their own; they guy at the front is leading them. Naomi's the one with the turquoise shirt.
