|On the right bank of LDR-A|
Willow was in full pull mode for much of the hike, but, surprisingly, neither she nor Frio lurched forward when a jackrabbit sped across the trail no further than ten feet ahead of us. And later--when we were bushwhacking across the floor to get to a Barrel Cactus for a photo-op--they didn't even see a small cottontail just a few feet away from us. Before the bunny could take off I turned the Heelers around and bushwhacked away from the critter. Aside from a few birds the hare and rabbit were the only animals I saw out there today.
Stopped off at our local Circle K to fuel up the CR-V on our way home.
