Another Rainy Desert Morning

At the dirt pullout just off Tellbrook
Not cold this morning, but, at first, drizzly, and then rainy.  We got wet during our outing, but not soaked.  We trekked all the way up to Second Arroyo, stopped in for water and a short break before heading back.

Both going and coming we saw the male half of the husband/wife jogging team; he preceded us up LDR, and then approached from behind as we were exiting Second Arroyo.  We stopped to let him pass because both Willow and Frio were too taken with him.  He's a very nice guy, and we exchanged greetings.  He always says to the Heelers, "Hi, guys."  They're used to him now so they don't bother to respond.

We made it to our waiting CR-V just before the sky dumped heavier rainwater on us.
