A Longer One

1st 3:  "O"s frolicking
Frio, Willow and I decided to extend the hike this morning, and we did some excellent bushwhacking to get to where we wanted to go.  The views from the ridge east of Left Branch Arroyo provide some spectacular views of the Organ Mountains and surroundings.

The "O"s are always especially happy when they get to trek long distances off lead, and that's just what happened today.  They were particularly well behaved during the outing.

We did a short drive after the hike; they like listening to Matt Jones and Myron Medcalf on the radio during the ride.
