Same Distance

Yucca stalk and its snake shadow
We did our usual hike this morning, but left out the trek down the middle branch of the new arroyo; that omitted section didn't affect the length of the outing, however, because we went both up and down the left branch before getting back to the intersection with the right branch.

Both Willow and Frio were really well behaved today, neither getting overly excited about the jackrabbit we encountered down near the east/west cross trail; additionally they didn't overreact when we saw people walking dogs on our drive back home.

Good Heelers!
