I extended the hike quite a lot today, crossing the Tellbrook Arroyo after descending the LDR-A arroyo, heading east toward the Organs until reaching a major north/south arroyo, following that arroyo north until reaching a spot where we began bushwhacking to the west.
When we came to one of the small arroyo that leads south we followed it back to the Tellbrook, and then trekked up the new arroyo, taking the right branch and exiting up the hill beside the upper flatland road.
