We trekked all the way up to Second Arroyo, entering and meandering up to our shady rest and water spot. After hydrating I went for a brief photo-op exploration while Dr. K waited with the Heelers.
We saw just one other outdoor enthusiasts in our section of the northern Chihuahuan Desert this morning, a guy with a huge straw hat who usually hikes with a woman, presumably his wife. He was just starting off when we were climbing back into the CR-V, a very late beginning for him.
