Oh, Arroyo, We Love You So…

From hiking the trails, walking the dog(s), running the paths, navigating through the new landscape of fallen trees after The Windstorm, to strolling and chatting with a friend or walking solo at sundown to catch the settling of the day, the Arroyo feels like our Arroyo, something personal and meaningful.
