Covering New Ground

Upper flatland road
I wanted to do another long hike this morning, and it occurred to me that we could, from the left branch arroyo, bushwhack over to the hills and ridgeline east of us, the ridge where we often see the Basset people and their hounds hiking northward.

We did just that, and the "O"s loved it; they were off lead the entire time; their behavior was close to excellent even though they sometimes pushed ahead of me a bit too far.

Only complaint I had about this morning's trek was the weather conditions; it was cloudy and cold.  The sun showed itself a few times masked by clouds, but it never shone down on us during the entire outing.

After the hike we drove over to the PanAm Center to mail a few bills.  The "O"s enjoyed the ride.
