Temps in the low 80's, sunny with a few clouds, steady light northerly breeze.

Been awhile since I hiked!  Trails are dry and easy to traverse.  Quite a few birds out - the park is beginning to see some of the winter migrating birds come through.  Nothing unusual to report so will make this very brief.

NOTES
