A New Arroyo

This and the next:  small Soaptree Yucca along the new trail
On a beautifully warm morning in the northern Chihuahuan Desert Dr. K, Willow, Frio and I hiked down LDR, crossed the Tellbrook Arroyo and began bushwhacking west of the road to see if we could find a trail we've seen people hiking on in the past.

We continued up LDR to Second Arroyo, stopped in for water and photo-ops, and then headed back on what was a very enjoyable outing today.
