We did the same hike as the one we did yesterday, down the LDR-A arroyo, over to the new arroyo and up and down the left branch, up the right branch and out.

Both Frio and Willow enjoyed themselves immensely, and they were both very well behaved.  I sure appreciate it when the Heelers are under control the way they were today.
