Hiked up to a ridge south of First Arroyo, climbed up into the hills above, and then took our time moseying over to the spot chosen for our descent into the sandy, dry river of life for this section of desert. Had some water, took some photos, then headed back.
We saw nobody else out there on this fine church-going Sunday morning as we communed with the spirit of nature.
