Just after crossing the Tellbrook Arroyo we looked back up LDR and saw a horse and rider descending. They must have seen us, too, because they held back until we had advanced far enough for them to head westward in the arroyo. They didn't go far, though, and turned back up the road not long afterward.
When they got back to the high flatland I took several photos of them before they disappeared; that's when I noticed the dog who was their companion. It looked awfully like a Heeler doing its best impression of a Coyote.
Best part of today's trek: we didn't feel completely battered by the wind by the time we finished up.
