Almost Two Hours

This and the next:  lenticular cloud means high winds aloft
Spent nearly two hours in the desert with the Heelers this morning, encountering no one, but having to avoid a man and woman descending LDR with two small dogs when we were headed back.  We did this by retracing our bushwhacking journey on the outbound leg, retracing our steps back to the trail west of the road.

Unfortunately the man, woman and their canines had chosen that route to follow so we had to make an abrupt bushwhack to the east to intersect LDR.

Things were copacetic after that, and we were able to make it back into the upper flatland without running into anybody.
