South Shore Playground to Nature Trail

Horned Toad checking me out
This guy was watching me as I approached. When he was first spotted in this photo, he was standing up, however, the closer I approached, the lower he went. By the time I reached him, he was flat on the ground.

After another much welcomed rain, I took a short hike to see how the trails looked - they are in very good shape and no problems were encountered.  With the rains we've had lately, the grasses are growing, along Nature Trail in particular, which means you have to be a little more cautious in watching for snakes and other trail hazards. 

Not much else to say except to watch for fellow trail users, both human and otherwise!
