Pick-up Day

In the high foothills
Becca and I got an early start on our morning trek, and we did a moderately-long hike west of Tortugas Mountain.  We encountered only one other hiker while we were out there, although I did discover that I'd captured an image of another on the high foothills trail when I took a shot of the western face of the mountain.  Had to get back home in time to compact some cardboard boxes and put them as well as tree branches and clippings from bushes into our dumpster before the garbage truck showed up to collect it all.
