In order to avoid the two outdoor enthusiasts Willow, Frio and I had to bushwhack eastward through a series of adjoining arroyos that led us back to the Tellbrook Arroyo. We then followed the arroyo that parallels LDR-A back into the upper flatland.
Aside from the Heelers nearly ripping my arms out of their shoulder sockets when twice they tried to pursue a fleeing jackrabbit it wasn't a bad outing. The temperature was surprisingly comfortable even though it was 39F at start; 57F when we finished up.
