Saturday Scramble

Trekking along the foothills
Becca and I did a long Saturday trek west of Tortugas Mountain, and we only ran into two people when we had nearly finished our hike.  We did see some people with dogs on Geothermal when we were about a mile into our trek, but we saw nobody else in the outback while exploring and taking photos.  I use my FujiFilm camera for snapping pics, and Becca uses her smartphone.  Between the two of us we usually get some good images.
