Combo

Shadows of three amigos
We did a combination of trails today:  down LDR-A and across the Tellbrook Arroyo; east on a trail that parallels the Tellbrook on its northern side; up the wide arroyo that leads, eventually, to the road Becca and I used to follow often.

Halfway up that arroyo Willow, Frio and I turned around, headed back to and across the Tellbrook to the south side; from there we hiked west to the mouth of the new arroyo we've been exploring, turned left and hiked a short distance to the narrow trail that leads west back to LDR-A.

A short distance up the alternate long dirt road brought us to the entrance to the series of small arroyos that parallel LDR-A, which we followed back into the upper flatland and our waiting CR-V.  All in all a pretty good outing.
