Desert lessons. I took a hike in the desert & learned some desert lessons.

Pliers. Walking in the desert you need pliers. Water too but everyone thinks of water...
|Gerber pocket tool closed|
The need for Pliers is only evident AFTER you brush up against a cactus.
Grab the barbed spine close to the skin & a heavy steady pull to pull it out.
Tweezers would not work, I had to pull hard.
|Cactus attached to leg, I needed the pliers|
|Cactus, again it was pliers time|
A small tissue packet could come in handy too, you never know when you'll really need some tp... A walking stick is a lot of help going up and down the steep hills, it's good for turning small rocks over pushing things you wouldn't want too close to you away.
|A VERY valuable tool opened|
|A $2 walking stick from the Goodwill|
|A bed a quartz crystal up on the hill|
There are some nice rocks & fine views to be had!
