|Soaptree Yuccas at the side of LDR-A|
Even though Frio and Willow had both seen the no good Bassets they were not frantic to get out and pursue them. But once the Basset scent grabbed hold of Willow's snout things got a bit worse. Fortunately we were crossing the upper flatland road over to LDR-A where we made our descent. I went slowly, and once we saw the pack turn west into the Tellbrook Arroyo it was clear sailing. We picked up our pace. Not far up LDR we stepped off the road to let a single runner headed in our direction pass by. We all exchanged morning greetings, even Frio and Willow who whined and whimpered to acknowledge the guy.
After a brief stop in First Arroyo we headed back on LDR. Before cresting the road in the upper flatland I was surprised to see a huge old Torrey Yucca blossoming in two of its five crowns. Hoping it will flower in the other three soon.
