|This and the next: same Soaptree Yucca in First Arroyo|
As we were hiking back along LDR we spotted a lone hiker behind us headed in our direction; never caught up to us, though.

As we approached our CR-V we saw the man and woman runners who we frequently encounter on Saturdays in the desert. We exchanged pleasantries before going separate ways--they for their run, and us for a long drive after a satisfying hike.
