|Barrel Cactus buds|
On the way back up LDR-A we saw three horseback riders behind us on LDR, and then, a short while later, a young guy in a passenger car driving up LDR to where it intersects with Tellbrook. Not sure who would want to drive a car on that dirt road, but to each his own.
On the way home we made a detour to our local gas station to refuel Whitey the CR-V, and then we drove up Geothermal Road to see how crowded it was at the gate to the dirt road. Neither Frio nor Willow seemed upset by the extra-long ride.
