Although we saw a few jackrabbits out today--including one the Heelers were ready to chase--there were no other sentient beings around; no vehicles were parked at the Tellbrook/Sonoma Ranch lot, either.

The trek up to Second Arroyo, the bushwhack into First Arroyo and the trek back gave us some good exercise on this cloudy and cool day in our section of the northern Chihuahuan Desert.
