Patty and I stopped at the Sonoran Desert National Monument on the second day of our trip. I’m always amazed and excited when we have a chance to explore a new-to-us corner of our public lands.
Patty ran to his heart’s content and the exercise is a great break from an otherwise long day in his crate in the truck.
He had one run-in with a cactus and ended up with a couple of cladodes (look it up) stuck to his tail. I was carrying a Leatherman’s Tool so in just a few minutes I had his tail cleaned up and Patty was off running again.
After an hour or so we headed back towards the Interstate to continue our trip.
