|Dr. K and the Heelers|
On the way back up LDR we saw a man and woman descending in our direction. We decided to bushwhack across to LDR-A to avoid them. We suspected they might be Mr. and Mrs. Big Hat, a suspicion that was confirmed when we got back to our vehicle and noticed their SUV parked on the south side of the road.
We aborted our normal Saturday after-hike drive because we were distracted by breaking news from the impeachment trial of Donald Trump, and we wanted to get home to watch the events on television.
