Change on the Horizon

Alongside LDR-A
Early Sunday morning hike up to Second Arroyo, east in the arroyo to a shady spot for a water break, and then a short bushwhack over to First Arroyo to start the trek back.

We saw some fellow explorers out there this morning, but only from a great distance.  As we approached the Tellbrook Arroyo a guy with two dogs on leads appeared from the west and headed up LDR to the high flatland.

We chose to return via LDR-A, a slightly longer route to the heights.  The man with the dogs was nowhere to be seen when we got up there, though we spotted him walking his pups down Tellbrook when we were driving home.
