Temps in the 60's, sunny and consistent, STRONG westerly wind.
The wind was so strong, few birds were out. I was surprised seeing a few buterflies and dragonflies out. What was really surprising was seeing Bee Brush beginning to bloom again! This is the fourth time this year the plant has produced flowers and the vanilla scent (photo attached).
Three mountain bikers shared the trails with me, otherwise it was very peaceful listening to the wind go through the trees and brush. One of the better hikes I had lately!!
