Arroyos or Bust

Frio, Willow and I had a pleasant morning hike up to First Arroyo where we stopped inside for a bit before bushwhacking over to Second Arroyo.  As soon as we entered the latter arroyo the Heelers tried to spring into action, chasing not one, but two different Black-tailed Jackrabbits.  Fortunately I saw both hares just before the dogs did, and I was able to strengthen my grip on their leads.

Those were the only sentient beings we spotted during our outing today.  After the encounter we hiked west down Second Arroyo to LDR, and then followed the dirt road south all the way into the upper flatland where the CR-V waited.
