Friday Trek to 2nd Arroyo

Desert Spiny Lizard needs a nail clipper
Early morning hike up to Second Arroyo and back for Willow, Frio and me.  The temperature wasn't too high so we enjoyed ourselves while we were out there.

Saw a few critters while today, but no human beings.  The humans we did see were those in the construction crew along Tellbrook.  It looks like they'll be repaving the road for some time--perhaps all the way up to Sonoma Ranch Road and beyond.

At least there will be no construction tomorrow or Sunday.
