Don't normally see one of these while hiking.

Location: San Angelo State Park

Miles Hiked: 1.20 Miles  Elapsed Time: 45 minutes


Warm, sunny day with a light breeze.  Walked from Burkett Park along Burkett Trail and back.

Saw a solitary longhorn near the turnaround point.  It looked like the same cow I saw in the same general vicinity last week.  I talked to the park personnel on my way out and they assured me the longhorn was in good health and was properly looked after.  For whatever reason, she wanted some solitude from the rest of the herd.

Also saw an AWACS plane (photo attached) which is very unusual for this area.

Nobody else on the trails; it was a good hike.
