Another Alternate Route

Another surprise when we reached the trailhead this morning:  the guy who drives the tan Jeep was already parked there; he has a large dog we want to avoid so we drove across the upper flatland road to our old parking spot and left the CR-V there.

We hiked down LDR, crossed the Tellbrook Arroyo and headed north to the mesquite tree we used to stop under often in the past.  From there we took a short jog east into the desert before returning to the dirt road.

We trekked straight back up LDR to the upper flatland road and our CR-V.  An OK hike.

Garage door wouldn't open when we got home, and we discovered as soon as we got inside that there was a power outage; lasted about 45 minutes.
