We trekked up to Second Arroyo today, stopped inside for water and photographs, and then made our way back. We saw nobody else out there during our exploration despite the beautiful weather.
On the way down LDR on our inbound leg we noticed a thin layer of smoke near the top of the Organ Mountains. We looked hard, but couldn't spot the source of the smoke.
