|Heading down LDR-A|
We saw no one during our exploration of this section of the northern Chihuahuan Desert--just the way we like it--and, in fact, didn't notice any vehicles parked in the lot at the corner of Tellbrook and Sonoma Ranch at the start and finish of our trek.
We did a fairly long hike up to First Arroyo and back, a thoroughly beneficial outing enjoyed by humans and canines as well.
