We slogged up to First Arroyo, went inside and took a short water break, and then we turned around. The ascent back to the upper flatland was tiring, but as soon as we crested LDR the breeze picked up again. Didn't do us much good, though, as we were headed out.
Saw several vehicles today, but no humans. I'm sure all but the most avid lovers of the outdoors avoid these weather conditions.
