Far Side Trek

Starting out on the south side of Telbrook
Willow, Frio and I hiked the dirt roads south of Tellbrook this morning, spending a brief time in an arroyo we've only explored once before.  While inside the arroyo we saw three coyotes cross in front of us at a distance of about 100 feet.  Never saw them again after that.

Much cooler today, but pretty humid.  Chances of rain have diminished significantly this afternoon.  Only saw one other person out there during our explorations, the male half of the husband and wife team who run/walk in the area frequently.  He was quite distant from us, though, and didn't spot our trio.

Got a lot of good exercise in before we headed back to Whitey the CR-V for the ride home.
