Over the Hump Trek

Always happy to get an early start
Becca and I got an early start on our trek this morning, and we pretty much stuck to the well-traveled trails west of Tortugas Mountain; we did venture up the east/west arroyo, heading back toward the mountain.  We ran into Courtney and her dog, Pepper, on the road leading to the mountaintop.  Pepper was wearing saddlebags with water inside, and she was completely well behaved while carrying them.
