My exploration up the arroyo behind our building was fruitful, so today I figure I’ll see where it goes in the other direction. It’s a different world this way, a tour of highways, dumping grounds, barnyards, and arroyo flotsam. Most significantly, it’s all sand and gravel, which makes for tougher hiking than I expect. I make it less than eight miles down before turning around at a fence across the arroyo, and yet once again I’m hobbling by the time I make it back. This time I have some really icky blisters to show off.
