Any Given Saturday

Frio and Willow
Heelers were feisty again this morning, but not as bad as yesterday.  Today, on several different occasions, they acted as if we were on the brink of encountering something big, but I never saw nor heard anything.  Since my olfactory sense isn't nearly as well developed as theirs it goes without saying that I didn't smell anything.

We did our normal trek down LDR-A arroyo, right on the east/west cross trail, up the left branch of the new arroyo, down the middle branch, and then up the right branch and out on the steep hill next to the upper flatland road.

By the time we reached the CR-V for the drive home, both Willow and Frio had settled down significantly.
