|Headed down the LDR-A arroyo|
Instead of crossing over to intersect Right Branch Arroyo we bushwhacked north eventually catching a narrow arroyo to follow all the way down to the east/west cross trail. From there we turned to the east and entered the new arroyo, deciding on the middle branch for the climb southward.
Upon intersecting with the left branch we followed it down to the junction with the right branch and then headed south up into its source. We exited that arroyo up the steep hill just east of the upper flatland road where our CR-V was parked. Both Willow and Frio were very well behaved today, and, man, did I ever appreciate it.

I love those photos of the Barrel Cactus, especially the last two images.
