|First 2: headed down LDR-A|
This is an arroyo we've explored in the distant past, and it led us into familiar territory where I spent a lot of time with Becca years ago. Frio and Willow enjoyed themselves immensely even though they must have been somewhat hot; we're still pretty warm for early October--our expected high is 86F.
At the far point of our hike I considered bushwhacking up to the southernmost outer loop road, but decided against it due to dense undergrowth. Instead we made a U-turn and retraced our steps back into the upper flatland and to our waiting CR-V.

I'm glad all three of you were able to take a longer hike on a beautiful morning. I really like the photo of the Sandhill Cranes.
