We saw two hikers at a great distance on LDR, but we never encountered them; they were the only other outdoor enthusiasts we spotted during our trek.
All four of us--Dr. K, Willow, Frio and I--were happy to reach the waiting CR-V at the end of our exploration, and we rode in air-conditioned comfort during our short ride back home.
