After Frio and Willow obligingly posed for portrait photos we continued on into the head of the new arroyo, climbed the steep hill out, and made our way along the upper flatland road toward our waiting CR-V.
We hadn't reached our vehicle when the Heelers spotted a guy walking his dog up Tellbrook Drive. Eager to get over to them, both Frio and Willow attempted to pull me off my feet so they could drag me face first through the cactus-filled desert. Fortunately I was able to resist their efforts, and I made it safely over to the Honda despite their protestations.
