A solitary Roadrunner preening his feathers before he flew off - not many birds were out today.
User: MikeHikes - 9/4/2016

Location: San Angelo State Park

Difficulty:  Solitude:
Miles Hiked: 6.00 Miles  Elapsed Time: 2 hours, 30 minutes


Out     Burkett park > Burkett trail > service road (ENE) > service road (W) > 5 Points Junction     2.5 miles

Return 5 Points Junction > Turkey Creek > Armadillo > East Potts Creek > Burkett trail > Burkett park    3.5 miles

Temps in the low 90's, partly cloudy, steady wind and slightly humid.

Almost all of the trails were dry with a few muddy spots.  Trails could use another trim but they were all passable.  No animal or reptiles seen, just some birds including this preening Roadrunner (photo attached).  Quite a few folks on the trails for Labor Day weekend !


Water, shade, info kiosk and dry toilets available at Burkett park.
