This was just a fitness hike in a big loop starting at Bell's Trailhead and heading South along Shady Trail and park service roads. Not much to report but the weather was nice (low 90's and a slight breeze) and the only wildlife observed were scissortail flycatchers.
We did see a group of mountain bikers (a few adults and a bunch of children) otherwise we were the only ones on the trails/roads.
One item of interest - for whatever reason, the park has capped off a water fountain at the Upper Ghost Camp. The water trough for horses is still there and full but the water fountain for humans, has been capped.
