|Frio and Willow|
We trekked toward the mountain until nearly reaching the north/south crossroad, choosing to bushwhack northeasterly to the dirt road rather than waiting until the arroyo intersected it.
A man and woman who had walked Geothermal to our location stood chatting for a while before turning around and heading back. We let them put some distance between us before following them westward to where we'd parked the CR-V. It was a longer hike than we'd done in a while.
