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.


Water, shade, info kiosk and toilets available at Playground parking area.
