Frontal Passages and Late Bloomers

Yesterday was cloudy and windy, positively dreary.  Last night the last of the major clouds passed through and we saw this.  In the middle of the photo is the trailing edge of the front, leaving us clear skies.  It also brought us a much cooler air mass, for which we are very grateful.

This is one of the late bloomers in the park.  We never knew it bloomed until last year when we returned to regroup after Kanab.  It's really gorgeous.  The blooms last one day, so you must be there when they open.

This is a large prickly pear.  He blooms a lot.  This has been a good year for the cactus.

The residents of the plague ship continue to improve.  Neither of us are 100%, but we're functional.  Today we walked a mile and a half, did laundry and after lunch we'll be going to Target.  So far I have not caught Jim's cold, so I am happy about that. 
At present we're debating the route to Oregon.  We like 395, but the more direct path is through the waste land that is Nevada.  Soon we must quit waffling and pick something.
