Cool Snap

This and the next:  heading down LDR-A
Long hike this morning:  down LDR-A across the Tellbrook Arroyo, right on a trail just beyond the arroyo into an area where we followed various arroyos northward.

I intended to drop down into either First or Second Arroyo from the ridgeline just south of the washes, but instead we just kept going all the way to the southernmost dirt road where we turned west.

After intersecting with LDR we followed it a brief way before crossing over into an arroyo that parallels it and leads eventually to Second Arroyo where we stopped in for a water break.  Then it was back to LDR and the hike south up to the upper flatland where we'd left the CR-V.
