|On the way down LDR-A|
We trekked nearly two-thirds of the way up to the parking lot at the corner of Tellbrook and Sonoma Ranch Road, took a slight break, and then turned around. Although we saw lots of birds we spotted no mammalian critters, including human beings. I'm always pleased by the absence of the latter animals.
On the way home we drove over to our local fueling station in order to fill up the tank of our CR-V. $3.49 per gallon for 86 octane gas. Outrageous!
