|Willow and Frio on break|
We did our usual hike, but stopped a bit shy of heading all the way up the Left Branch Arroyo because we heard a dog barking there; when Willow got excited, thereby setting Frio off, I decided to turn around.
At the intersection with the right branch we turned west and then headed south up the arroyo, exiting atop the steep hill beside the road where we'd left the CR-V.
