On the Embudo Trail.  June 8, 2008.   
Just a reminder that we are in a wilderness area--people have been attacked by mountain lions and bears in the region!  And we're only about a mile or so in on the trail from a housing tract! 
My hiking partner, Rene, with her dog, Tristan. 
For me, a pleasant surprise--about a mile and a half in, we came upon a nice little oasis! 
  

Rene wanting to know if I'm ready to hop over the little creek--the dogs really appreciated the drink of water--it was hot. 

 
Rene trudging onward.  
A little trickle of a waterfall.  

Rene resting after the hike at a picnic bench.  Albuquerque is in the background. 

 

This is a view of the area where the trailhead is located--at the end of Copper Ave. 

 
 Half-million dollar homes (or more!) built near the trailhead.
