Temp in the mid-30's, overcast and a strong northerly wind made this a cold, gloomy hike. We were dressed for the weather though so the only time it was bad was when the winds hit us in the face.
I wanted to do this route since I had not been on the service roads in quite awhile. Saw one group of three and one group of six, deer at different locations on the hike, some of the Official State of Texas Longhorns were seen on the way back and quite a few birds were flying about. Even though it was cold, all the animals still had to eat.
