|At the corner of LDR-A and upper flatland road|
While we were at the far point of the morning hike we heard a chorus of coyotes close by, but we never saw them. Just as well; the Heelers would have gone nuts.
After a brief pause for a rest and photo break we headed back, choosing to follow LDR into the upper flatland where the CR-V was parked.
