Because of the conditions we decided to trek down to the major arroyo, hang a right, and head up LDR-A back up to the top of the hill. We then followed the short spur road to Tellbook, turned and around and went back to our waiting CR-V.
It was a short hike, but it served several purposes: a bit of exercise for humans and Heelers alike, a chance to get out into the desert, and the opportunity for two dogs to do their business--both #1 and #2.
