We did a little bushwhacking this morning, climbing the hill just east of Left Branch Arroyo before walking north along a ridgeline. Photos #6 through #11 are taken from that vantage point. After dropping down from the ridge we headed back into Left Branch Arroyo before crossing over to the middle branch, which we followed to the intersection with the right branch.
From there it was up Right Branch Arroyo and out by following the trail over the steep hill into the upper flatland.
