Overcast, low 50's light wind. Wanted to hike along the fence line which goes into the old lake bed. Wandered around for a bit through LOTS of tumbleweeds and high grasses. Got to Cougar Lookout and won't try that route for another year.
Came back along established trails and had a good time all in all. As I hiked, I collected enough trash to completely fill a Walmart bag but the vast majority was older stuff.
