Frio and Willow weren't bothered by the conditions at all; in fact, they were more than ready to get going, pulling me after them down the first section of LDR-A before we detoured into the adjacent arroyo.
From there the pulling behavior got better until we started up the final stretch in Right Branch Arroyo. Heelers picked up a scent and were straining to track down the source of the aroma, but I never saw any fleeing critters in front of us.
