Towne Pass, about 5000ft above sea level on the road to Death Valley. Neat, cool enough to get out, walk around and stretch my legs.

Neat, they have some cactus out here, cattle tongue cactus or something.

Neat, they have this symmetrical pattern of dozens of black spots.

Uh, the dots on the one I stepped close to all shifted quickly in about a half-second and then stopped equidistant from each other again.

They're ticks.

They should name that place something ominous so people know not to go there.

phlegmmo: "Yeah, but it's a dry heat."

Makes sense if you've ever experienced 100f and enough humidity that acetone or MEK form puddles instead of evaporating. (or as they call it in some places in the South, spring) 105 and dry feels downright pleasant in comparison.
