Headed for Mid-70s

Sky at start
Even though the CR-V thermometer read 41F when we started off this morning it felt much warmer once Willow, Frio and I stepped out of the vehicle at the side of the upper flatland road.  There was no breeze, and the sun shone brightly.  I felt comfortably warm in a light vest and my Marmot PreCip jacket.

We followed the LDR-A arroyo down to the east/west cross trail, trekked over to the new arroyo, took the left branch into its head and then turned around to go back to the right branch intersection.

We hiked up the right branch into its head and then exited via the steep hill to the west.  All involved in the outing this morning had a good time.
