Temp dropped from 40 to 35, heavy overcast with strong, variable northerly winds.
Gloomy, cold day but a day on the trails is better than a day in the house. All the trails were easy to see and traverse. There were no animals observed but I saw an American Kestrel and some type of hawk, otherwise the bird activity was pretty low due to the strong, cold winds. Surprisingly, there were more people than usual on the trails either jogging or mountain biking. Today was the park's monthly "Volunteer Trail Maintenance Day" - I saw about a dozen volunteers gather at the Playground parking area as I prepared to hike. I didn't see them on the trails I hiked and when I returned to my car, they were gone.
