|Starting down LDR-A
Along the way up LDR, just after crossing the Tellbrook Arroyo, we looked back and saw somebody standing in the road staring at us. It was the beautiful Coyote pictured below, who stayed long enough for me to get a photo. Both Willow and Frio were particularly well behaved seeing as how they both had spied "God's dog" simultaneously.
When we finally reached the upper flatland the sun had come out a bit and the wind had pretty much ceased, allowing us to warm a little. This morning's outing can best be described by the word "invigorating."
