|Willow and Frio resting during a bushwhack|
We hiked along the upper flatland road to LDR-A, and just as we reached it the newcomers, whose names I know now because of joint introductions--Pamela and Terry--were coming up. We stood talking for a while until the guy in the hoodless white Jeep passed us.
Later, as we were almost to the Tellbrook Arroyo, a side-by-side came rocketing down LDR. Once passed the arroyo we turned east and began bushwhacking precisely to avoid encountering the ORV if the guy driving decided to turn around. By the time he did we were well into the roadless desert. From there we retraced our steps and returned to the upper flatland and our waiting CR-V.
