Hump Day Solo with Heelers

Sky was filled with contrails
I was on my own with the Heelers this morning.  Because the Bassets had undoubtedly been down LDR-A ahead of us--and Willow was crazed by their scent--we began bushwhacking eastward toward the Organs before we'd even reached LDR-A arroyo.

Got quite a bit of cross country trekking through the desert before we reached the left branch arroyo.  From there we did our usual hike.  I kept my eye out for our coyote friend, but never saw him.

I don't know whether Wednesday is an especially busy traveling day, but the sky was absolutely filled with jet contrails.

After the outing we drove over to our small post office to mail a bill.
