Return  Cougar Overlook > service roads (WSW) > cattle trails > Burkett park  2.7 miles

Temps in the mid-70's, sunny and windy.

Fitness hike with friends.  After a few days of welcome rains, decided to do a relatively simple hike on the service roads due to potentially wet and muddy trails.  Saw quite a few birds and the yellow flowers have started to appear (photo attached).

Saw the first horned toad of the year as well!
