Temps in the low 70's to start, low 80's at end, steady breeze, mostly cloudy turning to mostly sunny.
A very good day to hike! I saw a Great Horned Owl right at the start of the hike, otherwise just the usual birds on the trails. A few lizards scurried and two rats were also observed.
This log entry brings me to 1,000 logged miles!!
