|View from LDR-A at start|
We followed a trail of separate small arroyos to the north and northeast for a good while before stopping in a shady spot for water and rest. While we took a break we saw the man and woman who had preceded us up LDR making their return. They had parked their pickup truck on Tellbrook and had started their trek almost simultaneously with ours. We also saw a distant runner, and we guessed she was the jogger with the dog whose scent Willow will never relinquish.
It felt quite hot out there during our trek; we're slated to reach 99F today. There was a slight breeze when we got started, but it disappeared for the rest of our hike which led to some heat-related discomfort.
