|The long dirt road (LDR)|
On the way back we encountered a man and woman (presumably husband and wife) who we see fairly often out there. They're a very friendly couple, and we exchanged greetings; the man asked how the "pups" are doing.
When we reached the high flatland and were crossing back to our CR-V we saw a small SUV parked on the south side of Tellbrook; we were pretty sure it belonged to Mr. and Mrs. Big Hat, and, indeed, we saw them hiking LDR down in the valley just past the Tellbrook Arroyo.
