Temps in the low 60's to start and mid-70's to end, Strong West wind, and sunny.

Leisurely hike along dry, hard packed dirt and rock trails.  Not too many birds out today, perhaps because of the wind.  Picked up two bags of trash and found a couple of piles of cans I'll get on another day.

Not much else to say except pick up any trash you find and make sure you don't leave any yourself.
