Hiking Solo

East from Geothermal Road
Solo hike of about an hour this morning.  I knew--after recent rains--that the wide arroyo paralleling Geothermal Road would be damp enough to afford good traction for my hiking boots, and, indeed, it was and did.

I trekked through the arroyo from west to east until it intersected with the dirt road that leads north back to Geothermal, which I followed.  Then I walked west back down Geothermal until reaching the Jeep Commander I left at the parking area near the entrance to the university golf course.

Same as above, but using Dry Brush filter

Who's that couple near the right stalk of the Soaptree?

Oh--it's a couple of White-winged Doves

This and the next:  wide, slightly wet arroyo
