|Willow and Frio|
Fortunately the wind died down on our inbound leg vastly improving our outing. We saw the man we often see on LDR running sans wife, and coming down LDR-A was a woman jogging with her two dogs. We encounter this woman and her pups fairly frequently, sometimes with unpleasant side effects--barking and snarling--but we gave them a wide berth by bushwhacking into the desert west of the trail.
Despite the wind we had a pretty good outing in our section of northern Chihuahuan Desert.
