Despite the heat I headed out to McKinney Roughs to fill in some of the blanks from previous trips. Saw only three other people on the trail, so I pretty much had the trails to myself.

Because of spider webs across the trail I ended up using a broken branch to clear them out as I advanced (a.k.a. the magic wand approach) Two sections of trail had a very short detour around nesting Ground Bees, the first I had ever seen around here.
