Arroyo Exploratons R Us

At the corner of LDR-A and upper flatland road
Willow, Frio and I trekked down LDR-A to the Tellbrook Arroyo, turned right, and then turned right again to head up the arroyo we've been exploring of late.  We went as far as we've gone in the past, but pushed it a little further today, twice having to detour out of the arroyo due to impassable barriers.

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.
