Almost Pleasant

View from LDR-A
37F as we were heading out this morning, which was a real boon for the beginning of our trek.  With little wind and bright sunshine it felt wonderful out there as we made our way up to Second Arroyo.

A brief respite inside the arroyo for water and a few photographs was a welcomed break before we returned to the high flatland via LDR.  We saw nobody on our journey out and back, which is something we always appreciate.  It gives us the sense of having the entire desert to ourselves.
