Temps at and above 100, sunny, humid and a steady breeze from the South.
Easy hike for the first part of the hike along roads although the fireroad had been mowed awhile back, some of the cut weeds were sharp!
Return route was along trails, some overgrown in parts but passable. Saw an owl but couldn't get a photo. Not much going on due to the time of day and the heat - most of the birds were staying still and there were a few lizards out - that's all.
