|This and the next: east toward the Organs|
We hiked up to the second arroyo and trekked eastward along its length. After a water break, Dr. K minded the Heelers while I did a little scrambling up a nearby rise in order to take some photographs. After a brief stop we headed back to our waiting CR-V.
We didn't encounter any other hikers out there this morning, although we did see a few people coming our way up LDR when we were just starting off; we avoided them by taking LDR-A down to the major arroyo. And when we were leaving for home a woman, a man and a white dog had parked alongside Tellbrook, got out and began hiking LDR. The woman waved hello to us.
