|This and the next 6: outstanding skies|
We saw a woman with a white dog running north on the long dirt road, but we never came close to catching up with her. We did have to step off the road for a passenger car that was coming up behind us fairly quickly. The guy driving waved to us as he passed at a good clip, making me wonder why anybody would want to drive a passenger car so quickly on a rugged, though sandy, dirt road.
After stopping in First Arroyo for a water break I did a little exploring for photographic subjects before we all headed back to our waiting CR-V, thankful that the clouds provided a great respite from the relentless desert sun.
