Again With the Road Work

This & the next:  Littleleaf Ratany
I felt pretty certain yesterday that the road work on Tellbrook would resume today, and I wasn't wrong.  We had to pass two flagmen on the way up to the trailhead in the upper flatland.

Willow, Frio and I trekked up to First Arroyo, popped in for a drink and a brief respite, and then headed back.  We saw no other outdoor enthusiasts either going or coming.

The ride back wasn't too frightful, although the flagman on the high part of the hill had us drive in the opposite lane for nearly half a mile before we could get back into the proper lane.
