It wasn't until we started striking back that we saw the SUV leaving, headed up LDR past the spot where the CR-V was parked. Just to find out what the occupant(s) of the vehicle had been up to, Willow, Frio and I hiked up to where the SUV had been parked, but we didn't see any signs of nefarious activity.
At that point we turned around and ascended LDR back into the upper flatland.
