Dr. K came along on the morning hike with Willow, Frio and me. There were a few other outdoor enthusiasts in the desert today, but we ran into no one.
We did our usual trek: LDR-A arroyo, east/west cross trail, left branch, middle branch and right branch of the new arroyo, and then up and out on the hill west of the right branch.
After the outing we took a nice drive around several different neighborhoods, marveling at how beautiful some houses and their landscaping are, commenting about how dry weather conditions have been and, seemingly, will continue to be.
