Almost Chilly Again

This & the next:  sun breaking through clouds on the Organs
Even though it was 62F when we started off this morning strong winds and lack of sunshine made it feel almost chilly again.

Frio, Willow and I hiked up to Second Arroyo, entered it and took a short break before bushwhacking over to First Arroyo.  From there we headed west to LDR and trekked back to the south.

Midway on the long dirt road we had to step aside to let an off-road vehicle--a side-by-side--pass.  The driver and I nodded to each other.  Then I led the Heelers back onto the road for the final leg up into the flatland where our CR-V waited.
