|First 2: morning moon|
Willow and Frio had a blast today, but they were pulling like sled dogs for the first quarter of our trek. Willow's nose was glued to the desert floor for a good portion of the outing, as if a large number of critters had passed through right before we got there.
Although there were two vehicles in the Tellbrook/Sonoma Ranch parking lot when we got there I could see them pull out and leave just before we headed up Left Branch Arroyo. Didn't see any other human outdoor enthusiasts while we did our explorations.
