Mini Shawls: They're Not Just for Keeping You Warm
Woke up today to overcast skies so decided to do a desert hike at Calico Basin. By the time I got there, the sun was in full force and I had forgotten to put sunscreen on my arms. Fortunately, I had yet another Herbivore mini shawl with me (this one in Malabrigo sock yarn). So when I wasn't putting it on rocks for pictures, I put it over my arms for sunblock.
Daphne loved chasing lizards but soon got tired of the warm weather, so it was a short hike but pretty hike for us today. Spring is amazing here; there are spring flowers on the ground and mountains with snow in the distance.
