After a break to enjoy the summit of Tortoise Shell Mountain, I start my way back down to Woods Wash
On my way down, I'm serenaded by the electrical sound of some kind of desert cicada. I consider a side hike up adjacent Burro Canyon, but the mid-afternoon heat is starting to get to me, and my drinking water is getting really warm.
