Ain't Misbehaving. Not!

Crinkled sky
Willow's ballistic misbehavior when we encountered a woman running with her Standard Poodle caused me to shorten the morning trek significantly today.  As soon as we crossed the Tellbrook Arroyo after descending LDR-A, and both dogs had done their business, I turned around and headed up LDR to the waiting CR-V.  I was so pissed off at her and disappointed by her behavior that I didn't want to stay out longer than necessary.

On the other hand there were several positive things during our hike:  Frio was on his best behavior, and the downpour that thoroughly soaked the desert in our area didn't start until we had made it home.
