Sunny Saturday

Organ Mountains
The four of us did a longer hike on this sunny Saturday morning:  up to Second Arroyo and then a bushwhack over to a small single track trail that I used to hike fairly regularly with Becca.

We saw nobody during our sojourn, and animal sightings were few; the Heelers did act as though they were onto a scent several times, but we weren't sure what they'd picked up.
