Chisos Basin

April 25, 2016

Sunrise is at 7:30. At that time it is very cool outside – 60 degrees. By 11:00 the temperature rises to the mid 80s and then by 2:00 it is solidly 94 degrees. The temps do not begin to taper off until 7:00 in the evening. Sunset is at 8:30.
So we do our activities each morning and get home by about 3:00 in the afternoon. The casita is well air-conditioned and the WiFi is fast. It is chill-out time until cocktail hour on the patio at 5:30. Such creatures of habit we are. All creatures here have habits. The desert is an unchangeable reality and her rules are inviolate. Drink water regularly and significantly. Know your path. Have a companion.
