After the Kerfuffle

Just getting started on the upper flatland road
No encounters on our morning trek today, though as we were heading down LDR-A I saw someone running down LDR.  In order to avoid this person we turned east in the Tellbrook Arroyo, found a cutoff we used before and bushwhacked through the desert in a northerly direction.  When I stopped to take a photo a short while later I saw a guy jogging up LDR toward the upper flatland.

After exploring the desert for a while we turned westward and bushwhacked over to LDR, turning south to follow it back into the flatland where our CR-V waited.  We bumped into no one either going or coming, which is exactly how I like it.  I'm not too sure about the Heelers, though; sometimes I think they like to meet up with others in order to get their Heeler juices flowing.  By the way, both Frio and Willow were on their best behavior today.
