Four For the Arroyo

Weather at start
Dr. K accompanied Frio, Willow and me on our morning hike today, and we decided to explore the same arroyo as yesterday.  It was a lot of fun, but the day was already hot so we decided to cut the trek short.  Neither Heeler seemed to mind.

We saw two other hikers out there this morning, two people who were trailing behind us on the long dirt road.  They never caught up to us, though we did see them pass by the mouth of the arroyo as they were headed back.  They turned around at the intersection of the east/west dirt road and were already well on their way up the steep incline to Tellbrook when we started our return to the waiting CR-V.

I really like the 2nd black-and-white experiment. Those dead yuccas can get twisted into peculiar shapes.
